Bigfoot's 3rd Book

You may remember my post on Bigfoot's Autobiography, well I am happy to say there has been a third installment and our friend Bigfoot is as prolific as ever.

In his eagerly anticipated follow-up to Me Write Book, Bigfoot returns from exile to share his inspiring, hilarious, and often deeply disturbing experiences as a misunderstood forest gentleman and tragic media darling.

These entertaining and often grizzly stories stand not only as a testament to the greatness of the legendary man-beast, but also as a chilling cautionary tale of the downside of a life of celebrity, cannibalism, celebrity cannibalism, wanton violence, and lack of toilet training. As in Me Write Book, full-color glossy spreads depict every intimate, disgusting, and downright insane moment of Bigfoot's life.

Bigfoot: I Not Dead is an unforgettable memoir that will stay with readers long after his foul scent has dissipated.


Here is an interview with Bigfoot from walrusmagazine.com
This month marks the release of the third book in a series of collaborative memoirs by Bigfoot and Walrus contributing illustrator Graham Roumieu. Bigfoot: I Not Dead is a tender yet violent addition to Bigfoot’s ongoing self-exploration project, sure to please both fans of his previous work and those who aren’t yet familiar with him but enjoy furry creatures, mutilation, poetry, existential anxiety, and/or hard-learned life lessons.

Readers in Toronto should be sure to attend the book’s launch, which takes place Thursday night at the Gladstone Hotel as part of Pages Books’ “This Is Not a Reading Series.” Michael Winter, Nathan Whitlock, Douglas Bell, The Walrus’s own Jeremy Keehn, and others will speak about what Bigfoot means to them. Second floor, 7.30pm, free.

I reached Bigfoot last week at his home in the woods.

How has your life changed since your first book came out?
Bigfoot hang dirty laundry on line for all to see. Some things just needed be aired out on wind of disclosure. Others so heavy shit-encrusted that they fall off of line into mud and now scrutiny birds pick bits of corn out of it and neighbor steal and put on Ebay. Not totally regret writing books but wish sometime to go back to old technique of whisper secrets into hollow stump.

In your second book you noted that you had trouble talking to strangers and interacting in social settings. As you’ve become even more famous, has your social anxiety disorder eased, or are you still paralyzed with fear most of the time? If so, do you have any stress-reducing techniques that you’d like to share with our readers?

Some people when nervous in front of big crowd imagine audience naked. Bigfoot like imagine them cover in layer of fur. Used to imagine audience naked and dead but only creep Bigfoot out more and lead me to uncontrollable laughing and sobbing.

Really find no technique that work well for Bigfoot. No can trust human and animals. Always put on spot, want me tell funny story or smash things or want steal Bigfoot internal organ for dry and grind down and use in folk remedy tea. Bigfoot bit of introvert but still make effort go out and socialize. If conversation go bad always have last resort of smash bad person and flee into woods.

Some of your readers have noticed a new, darker component in your work. I’m thinking, for instance, of your sculptures, one of which recently featured a bleeding deer carcass in a flowerbed, adorned with a teddy bear, a thigh bone, two roses, a box of chocolates, and an engagement ring. You spelled out ‘Marry me’ in blood. (There was no question mark.) Is this a new element in your self-expression, or simply a more graphic manifestation of what we’ve seen so far?

No dark, just misunderstood and ahead of time. Bigfoot like working with hands. Very artistic. If Bryan Adams can make photo nice, why not Bigfoot make big blood and meat pile good too? You just afraid of what you no understand.

In your new book you offer the “Bigfoot Guide for Everything Ever Want Know About Forest Animal” in which you note that Leroy the grizzly bear is probably totally impotent, Bernard the beaver is an Al-Qaeda sleeper agent, and Mr. Miggins, who is some kind of weasel, is a pervert. What would that guide say about Bigfoot? And is it possible that by lashing out at your fellow forest creatures with simplistic definitions, you’re really trying to react against a world that has understood you simplistically? And if so, that’s a bit ironic, no?

I not understand question. Wait, are you calling Bigfoot stupid? Bigfoot only call it like he see it unlike this magazine where Bigfoot be make look stupid by get ask stupid question so magazine make look smart.

What’s next for you? Do you have any upcoming projects you’d like to tell us about?

I am going to kill interview man.


Once again if you get the book get it at Powell's Books The largest Bookstore i the world.
