Sh*t Rough Drafts collects fake misguided early drafts of classic books, screenplays, and contemporary literature, creating visions of alternate works that would exist had the authors not come to their senses. What if F. Scott Fitzgerald had gone with the title The Coolest Gatsby? How would The Hunger Games change if Peeta were armed only with blueberry muffins? If the Man of Steel's S stood for Sexyman? MacBeth, Moby Dick, Harry Potter, Sense and Sensibility, The Lord of the Rings, and many more are each presented as if they were the actual typed or handwritten pages by the authors themselves, revealing the funny and frightful works they might have been with a little less capable judgment.

Praise for Paul Laudiero's Sh*t Rough Drafts

"With potty humor and bad jokes, Laudiero makes us feel that we are capable of the next great American novel. If only we can get past our shit rough drafts." -HuffPost

"The account features whimsical takes on the proverbial 'rough first draft' that lurks behind every great book, from the Bible to Fifty Shades of Grey." -Daily Dot
