Book Proposal for Broadway Books
Title: Never Surrender, Never Swallow
For one year I will refuse to swallow anything, but I will go about my daily life exactly like one who would swallow things. I will teach classes, bike, go out in public, do readings, eat dinner & go out for drinks, all the while never swallowing any of the things I put in my mouth or even my own saliva.
Additionally I will treat this as a highly charged political act, a revolutionary decision that strikes at the heart of the vapid conservatism of the Tea Party just as effectively as at the psuedo-science of the Obama administration. I will explain my position at great length to anyone who asks me why my shirt front is covered with my own saliva & the masticated remains of a sandwich. My position will make no sense whatsoever.
In a time when the current events & politics section of the bookstores are filled with such ridiculous books, I figure this one is bound to be successful.
