David Rakoff and Dave Hill’s Awkward Book Tour
David Rakoff died last night, far too young at 47. Here’s a video that Dave Hill just put online of a “book tour” for Don’t Get Too Comfortable that they made together for a reading. It’s hilarious and wonderful and makes today that much more sad. Here’s Hill on the video:
A few years ago, David Rakoff and I, DH, made this video with Keith Aumont Goldberg to play at a reading we did together. In it, we pretend to go on a book tour for David’s second book “Don’t Get Too Comfortable.” In reality, we were just driving around mostly while I tried not to crash from laughing too much. Also, anyone who knows anything about David doesn’t need to hear this, but this being YouTube and all, I feel obligated to point out that this is a joke and not an actual documentary. Enjoy.
