The first piece of press this book got was back in May of 2010 about a day after the contract was signed.

Vice Founder Gavin McInnes Sells ‘Basically a Big Pile of Bar Stories’

NY Observer

 

Vice co-founder Gavin McInnes, represented by Byrd Leavell of Waxman, has sold a collection of stories to Brant Ramble at Scribner.

The book will be called The Death of Cool, [Not anymore! -Ed.] but McInnes says the subtitle remains undetermined: he was considering “From Teenage Rebellion to the Hangover of Parenthood,” but “the daddy thing” is only about a page and he doesn’t want to mislead anyone. The rest is “basically a big pile of bar stories.” There’s the time he showed up for a blind date and discovered the girl was paralyzed, for example. And the time he gave himself gonorrhea of the throat.

“We didn’t want it to come across as a memoir,” he said. “It’s really a punk rock version of I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell.”

He hopes to complete The Death of Cool in time for a summer 2011 release. Meanwhile, Street Boners–a book of style commentary from his current site, Street Carnage–is out May 27 from Grand Central.

In addition to humor, there will be “a tiny bit of sadness” in the form of heroin overdoses, and some discussion of the “intense satisfaction” he gets from raising his children.

“I’m not cool anymore,” said McInnes, who is 39. “I gotta pass the torch to the next generation of wastoids.”
