Reader Reviews

Praise

"This quirky, wide-ranging collection of essays, paired with gorgeous art, is a well-informed love letter to hip-hop."—Kirkus

Praise for Shea Serrano (And His Other Books):
 
"Paging through Serrano's Movies (And Other Things) is like taking a long drive at night with a friend; there's that warmth and familiarity where the chat is more important than the fastest route from Point A to Point B. [Movies] is like a textbook gone right; your attention couldn't wander if it tried. With a foreword by John Leguizamo and afterword by Don Cheadle, movie buffs have no excuse not to lose themselves in this oddball book."

New York Times

"Shea Serrano's Basketball (And Other Things) is equal parts hilarious and enlightening...this is the ultimate book on basketball fandom."

NPR

"Even if you're a basketball novice or die-hard Spurs fan like Shea, this is a perfect companion to his Rap Year Book: full of myths, what-ifs, and hyperspecific fanaticism."

Vulture

"Cleverly written and beautifully illustrated...It's a must for any basketball fan."

Esquire

"...hilarious and insightful..."

Men's Journal

"[Shea Serrano is] America's foremost chronicler of pop minutiae."
