Yes, but will there be a book tour?

NEW YORK (AP) - Janeane Garofalo, the comedian and political activist, is taking her message to the bookstores.

Janeane Garofalo foodFor Those About to Salute, We Will Rock You, a collection of political essays, is scheduled to come out this fall. [As of June 2005, the book still hasn't been released, but you can pre-order it at that link. -- LW]

"The book is like Susan Sontag meets The Onion, but not. ... I just wish it were like that," Garofalo said in statement released Tuesday by her publisher, Simon & Schuster.

Garofalo, a leading opponent of the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, is focusing her book on "the abuse of power in finance; the state of our national consciousness; the failures of the Bush administration; and the upcoming presidential election," according to Simon & Schuster.

If there's a book tour, I'll be there just like the fawning fanboy stagedoor johnny I am.
