I’ve been called the king of rejection and alienation (lucky me, lol), and with my complete ostracization from society, I wrote about it, sang about it, and presented it to the world – and got even more rejected in the process. So with my ongoing lifetime of continuous rejection, I think I have something quite appropriate to give to you.
Courtesy of Crown Publishers, I have two copies of a new book to give away to two lucky winners. It is by Bill Shapiro and called Other People’s Rejection Letters, and it contains a history of actual rejection letters received from: The United States Marines, The White House, Various Network Television Shows, Nasa, Playboy, the New York Times, and much more. You’ll even find those classic plain old “I’m dumping you, loser” rejection letters included for your voyeuristic pleasures.
This is a very well put together hardcover book that is visually like a surreal kaleidoscope of rejection after rejection. Thick paper, accurate reproduction of the letters, and the diversity of being dissed, make this book a real treat for any of us who have been thrown under the bus.
