The irreverent David Cross, who captured America's hearts (or at least the smart part of America) as the "never-nude," "analrapist" Tobias Funke and who graced SFist's comments with his controversial presence back in '07, has written his first book, I Drink for a Reason. Cross will be personally promoting the book this Saturday at 2 p.m. at the Union Square Borders (400 Post St) prior his show at the Warfield that night.

I Drink for a Reason is a mix of personal essays and satirical fiction posing as truth, such as his "brutally grotesque" run-in with Bill O'Reilly. The book also includes Cross' advice for rich people and a top ten list of top ten lists. This just in: Apparently, the book republished SFist Emily's entire scathing review, which had prompted Cross' aforementioned diatribe. This should be interesting.
