Sean Penn is a creator in every sense of the world. A renowned movie director, he has transitioned from the world of movies into the world of books.
He sat down for an interview to discuss his new book, Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff. The interesting thing about Penn’s new book is the fact that he didn’t write it; he spoke it. Penn has realized that dictation is his method of choice when it comes to putting words to paper.He speaks, and someone else writes. Penn has written in the past by use of a typewriter.
However, typewriters are now outdated and so are their ribbons. Penn doesn’t mind his obsolete typewriter but does mind that his only other method of typing is by using a computer. Sean admits that he was never literate when it came to using computers, so he spent some time one night writing his book by hand. The next morning, however, he was dictating. The ex-movie director says that his lips move faster than his fingers, so dictation has proven itself to be a reliable method for writing books.
When asked if the work of other authors motivated him to begin writing, Penn didn’t give an absolute answer. Instead, he showed annoyance with the question and voiced that he preferred not to have those particular conversations. He was willing, however, to talk about the main character in his book, Bob Honey. In Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff, Bob Honey is your average American trying to live his life and earn an honest dollar.
He is divorced, as many Americans are. To those that know him and those that don’t, Bob Honey seems like your average, everyday guy. However, he is more than that. He is a cold, hard, killing machine. He has enemies and isn’t afraid to confront them.
One particular antagonist who Bob Honey isn’t afraid to confront is The LandLord, a man who Bob feels has too much power, too much authority, and more than enough reasons to be impeached. Essentially, Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff is Penn’s thoughts on America and on the American lifestyle.
