How to Be Inappropriate: The Teaser Trailer. on Vimeo, a photo by danielnester on Flickr.
HOW TO BE INAPPROPRIATE: coming to bookstores this fall from Soft Skull Press.
Poetic farts. Prosaic moons. Overshares. Male enhancement pills.
Dry, offbeat, and mostly profane, this debut collection of humorous nonfiction glorifies all things inappropriate and TMI. Arguments, lists, barstool rants, queries, pedantic footnotes, play scripts, commonplace miscellany, profiles, and overly revealing memoirettes, How to Be Inappropriate adds up to the portrait of a twenty-something-become-thirty-something, bachelor-become husband, boy-man-about-town who bumbles through life obsessed with one thing: extreme impropriety.
TMI. Urban sketches. Extreme tanning. The licking of feet.
In How to Be Inappropriate, Daniel Nester determines the boundary of acceptable behavior--mostly by disregarding it. As a here-to-cut-a-hipster-swathe-through-the-city man, he looks for love with a Williamsburg abstract painter who has had her feet licked for money. As a teacher, he tries out curse words with Chinese students in ESL classes. Along the way, Nester provides a short cultural history of mooning and attempts to cast a spell on a neighbor who fails to curb his dog. He befriends exiled video-game king Todd Rogers, and reimagines Terry Gross’s Fresh Air conversation with--and invents a robot version of--Kiss bassist Gene Simmons.
No matter which misadventure catches your eye, How to Be Inappropriate will make you appreciate that someone else has experienced these embarrassing sides of life so that you won’t have to.
"Daniel Nester is funny as hell."--Stephen Elliott, author of The Adderall Diaries and Happy Baby
"If there was Nobel Prize for Achievement in Inappropriateness, Daniel Nester would be Laureate of the Universe. Until then, he'll have settle for having written this shockingly innovative stunner of a book. Nester brings his irreverent, elegiac sensibilty to subjects ranging from the essence of literary truth to the enduring mystery of flatulence, managing in the bargain to highlight the bleak hilarity of human existence--which, when you think about it, is the most inappropriate thing of all."--Rachel Shukert, author of Have You No Shame?

Two sets of inappropriate quotation marks for the price of one! So, basically, if you see something that really belongs on the floor, don't pick it up? OK.

Some explanation is necessary for this title. "I hate white rabbits" is something you say when the campfire smoke is blown into your face. Saying that is supposed to make the smoke move away. One of those old wives' tales.
Yes here I am on a narrowboat , you can tell I NEVER pose before a camera....I was feeling very Gay and rather camp...actually I hate the word camp. I prefer to say "we are as we are" and leave it at that. I was on board the "COOEE TWO!" hope that made you laugh
