The New York Times bestselling raucous and sardonic memoir from Bruce Campbell, a follow-up to the New York Times bestselling If Chins Could Kill, now with all new materialWith an introduction by New York Times bestselling author and famous minor television personality John Hodgman. Hail to the Chin is the new raucous and sardonic memoir from Bruce Campbell, a follow-up to the New York Times bestselling If Chins Could Kill. It's been 15 years since his first memoir but Bruce is still living the dream as a B movie king in an A movie world. His roles have been as varied as they are numerous--from the Spider-Man movies to his self-referential My Name is Bruce to the #1 show Burn Notice and his STARZ hit series Ash vs Evil Dead. Bruce covers the professional and the personal with stories about his quickly canceled series Jack of All Trades, working on Sci-Fi Channel movies in Bulgaria and playing Santa Claus and Ronald Reagan as well as his move from Los Angeles to Oregon where he distills lavender and joins the local Elks club. And now in this updated paperback, Bruce shares brand new stories from his life since the hardcover's publication, including a requiem of Ash and details from his European book tour. Hail to the Chin will be bursting with pictures and the signature humor that Bruce brought to If Chins Could Kill and will be devoured by his legions of fans across the country.
Campbell is an amusing raconteur, sharing stories about shooting the indie film My Name Is Bruce in his backyard, working on his old friend Sam Raimi's Spiderman movies, and spending seven seasons on Burn Notice. . . . Campbell is always entertaining, and his smart-ass style makes for a groovy ride. . . . Fans will eagerly await a sequel. --Publishers WeeklyDie-hard fans will embrace it as canon... --The Washington Post Whether recounting his life in the boondocks of south Oregon or the making of the dud The Man with the Screaming Brain in Bulgaria, Campbell, backed by co-author Sanborn, and his B-movie anecdotes, are thoroughly engaging and witty. --Booklist
