Spoilers: Essays That Might Ruin Your Favorite Hollywood Movies (Paperback)
"Popular movies are a near-universal language, and it's the currency that drives Spoilers, a collection of essays in the style of McSweeney's or 'Shouts & Murmurs'...a book that offers pure entertainment and well-earned laughs" -- Vulture, Best Comedy Books of 2023 (So Far)
"Carlos is on McSweeney's Mount Rushmore of satirists. Spoilers is a brilliantly funny display of his comedic talents." -- Chris Monks, Managing Editor of McSweeney's Internet Tendency
"This book has way more jokes than Schindler's List." -- an objective statement of fact
Superman tries to apply for a Green Card but doesn't have the proper documentation from his home planet. The Little Mermaid writes a tell-all book about her struggle to fit in with her new siren-skeptical royal family. And an increasingly unhinged J. Edgar Hoover opens an FBI investigation into a counter-cultural rabble-rouser by the name of Forrest Gump. These are just a few of the scenarios explored in this raucous collection of essays from frequent New Yorker and McSweeney's contributor Carlos Greaves. Spoilers will leave you laughing at hitherto unexamined plot points of your favorite films, at the sorry state of the world we live in, and definitely at whoever's idea it was to open a theme park full of people-eating dinosaurs.
