Not only is Sean Penn an actor, director, writer, and producer, he is now an author, the writer of “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff.” He has published opinion pieces as well as been a war correspondent who went to interview Hugo Chávez, as well as Cuban President Raúl Castro. His most famous interview was the Mexican drug lord, Joaquín Guzmán. His book, “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff,” is all about a divorced septic tank repairman who kills people since he’s a contract killer for the United States government. This book is all satire, and all his.
Compared to film projects, writing a book is a lone wolf scenario. Working on movies can wear Penn down because of the personality of others he had to work with. He may or may not have a new book on the horizon. He may want to direct another movie but he is particular about which sort of movie he’d like to work on. His writing has been compared to William Burroughs and Mark Twain.
Bob Honey was composed by dictation. This book is a way of expressing where he is in the world right now and how he feels about it. He found the characters in Bob Honey, the character is the author of the book itself. Bob Honey is a storyteller’s voice. He’d write longhand at night. He has something to say about the MeToo# movement trying to encourage social equality’s successful upbringing if that should eventually come to pass in the United States. He has criticisms of the Trump administration as well, hinting he needs impeachment. Penn has been to Haiti to help them after their earthquake, taking issue with the slur President Trump used about certain poor countries. He has worked with many world leaders as a writer. The United States is at war often, he says, and this is something troubling to him. We do not have the full story about what America is doing in the world. 28% of the United States has passports and sometimes some people can’t afford travel. Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff has received mixed reviews in 2018.
