About this title

Synopsis:

Essayist Ryan Britt got a sex education from dirty pictures of dinosaurs, made out with Jar Jar Binks at midnight, and figured out how to kick depression with a Doctor Who Netflix binge. Alternating between personal anecdote, hilarious insight, and smart analysis, Luke Skywalker Can't Read contends that Barbarella is good for you, that monster movies are just romantic comedies with commitment issues, that Dracula and Sherlock Holmes are total hipsters, and, most shockingly, shows how virtually everyone in the Star Wars universe is functionally illiterate.

Romp through time and space, from the circus sideshows of 100 years ago to the Comic Cons of today, from darkest corners of the galaxy to the comfort of your couch. For anyone who pretended their flashlight was a lightsaber, stood in line for a movie at midnight, or dreamed that they were abducted by aliens, Luke Skywalker Can't Read is full of answers to questions you haven't thought to ask.

About the Author:

Ryan Britt has written for the New York Times, Electric Literature, the Awl, and Clarkesworld Magazine, and he is a consulting editor for Story Magazine. He was the staff writer for the Hugo Award-winning web magazine Tor.com, where he remains a contributor. He lives in New York City.
