One Half of the Coen Brothers to Publish Book of Apocalypse Poetry


According to Jacket Copy, filmmaker Ethan Coen, one half of the cult brotherly team that brought us great films like “No Country For Old Men,” “The Big Lebowski,” and “True Grit,” among others, is coming out with a new book of poetry, to be published by Crown in the spring of 2012. Which, in case you’ve forgotten, would see the book, entitled “The Day The World Ends,” printed just in time to get a couple readers before the Mayan-predicted end of the world. How very Coen-esque.

“The Day The World Ends” will be Coen’s second book of poetry – the first, entitled “The Drunken Driver Has the Right of Way,” was published in 2009. He is also the author of a book of short stories, entitled “Gates of Eden.”
