A while ago, I wrote a review of the book Jack Torrance writes during The Shining. (It’s funny because the novel is just the sentence “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” repeated over and over again.) Now Overthinking It reader Phil Buehler has kicked things up a notch by actually producing the book.
And not only did he write 80 pages of All Work and No Play Makes Jack a Dull Boy, he made sure each page is formatted in a different delightfully insane way. And he’s blurbed OTI on the back cover. I am disproportionally proud of this.
Sadly, it’s too late to get a copy for Christmas, but I guarantee this will start conversations on the subway. Nice work, Phil.
All Work and No Play… [Blurb]
Wow, that’s hardcore fan-ness. Props to you, Phil.
Scandal! Phil’s version is a cheap rip-off of Klaus Scheruebel’s “Jack Torrance’s All Work and No Play”, 600 pages volume from 2006/2008!!! Amazing! Scheruebel seems to have produced a previous version of the text in 1993. Check it out.
I published the same book one month before Phil.
Just to let you know:
looks like a coincidence…
