About the Author

Shea Serrano's most recent book, Movies (And Other Things), was, among other things, a #1 New York Times bestseller. His previous book, Basketball (And Other Things) was also a #1 New York Times bestseller and was selected by President Barack Obama as one of his favorite reads of the year. His book before that, The Rap Year Book, was also a New York Times bestseller, and was turned into a documentary that aired on AMC. Currently, he is a staff writer for The Ringer where he co-hosts the popular rap podcast No Skips.

Reviews

"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."

--Texas Monthly
"Serrano is at his best when relating stories... but all his hip-hop coverage is great fun and his penchant for injecting outright ridiculousness and self-deprecating humor into the mix makes it even better."
--Booklist Review
