Awesome Ally Chris Kluwe Writing A Sure-To-Be-Awesome Book

isabel kluwe chris kluweMinnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe stole our heart when he wrote a devilish open letter to anti-equality Baltimore Del. Emmett C. Burns Jr.

Kluwe wrote:

I find it inconceivable that you are an elected official of Maryland’s state government. Your vitriolic hatred and bigotry make me ashamed and disgusted to think that you are in any way responsible for shaping policy at any level.

Well, the soulful sports pro is putting finger to keyboard again on a new book of essays, Beautifully Unique Sparkleponies, due out this summer from Little, Brown and Company.

A collection of uncensored personal essays, the book will delve into issues ranging from faith and government to human rights and professional sports.

“Chris Kluwe’s book is just like Chris Kluwe,” Editor John Parsley said in a release. “Sharp-tongued, forthright and committed to exposing and eviscerating our society’s density as quickly and completely as possible.” Kluwe rose to national prominence with his scathing public letter to a Maryland state politician that immediately went viral. He actively campaigned against the Minnesota constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage and has since appeared on the Colbert Report and The Ellen DeGeneres Show

In a tweet, Kluwe called the book “a collection of uncensored essays and stories about whatever I feel like.”

The collection’s unusual name came from the substitute phrase Kluwe used in the cleaned-up version of his anti-Burns rant. The original term was “lustful cockmonster.”

Beautifully Unique Sparkleponies hits stores on June 25, but you can pre-order it now.
