'Boring' writer becomes bestseller

Actor, director and cult guru, Kevin Smith now has another accolade to add to his name, as astonishing sales of his new book My Boring-Ass Life: The Uncomfortably Candid Diary of Kevin Smith (out now from Titan Books) have made him a New York Times Bestselling Author!

Busy publicising the book in the US and UK, while writing his upcoming feature, Zack and Miri, Smith’s reaction to his new Bestseller status was met with his usual humour, as he commented, “that’s something I never expected to be.

"I figured I’d be thin before I’d ever make it on that list.”

Smith’s new book provides an in-your-face exposé of his day-to-day life over the past two years, covering the production and release of Clerks II, battling the heroin addiction of his friend Jason Mewes, his work opposite Bruce Willis in Live Free or Die Hard, and is a bizarre and wonderful array of daily trials and tribulations, telling all in his usual candid, heartfelt and irreverent way.
