Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff by two-time Academy Award-winning actor, writer, and director is Mr. Penn’s first novel. The darkly humorous novel tells the picaresque story of Bob Honey, a middle-aged, divorced, disillusioned man living in a nondescript house on a nondescript street in Woodview, California. Bob Honey is a man of many trades—sewage specialist, purveyor of pyrotechnics, contract killer for a mysterious government agency that pays in small bills.

He has worked as an actor, writer, producer, and director on over one hundred theater and film productions. His journalism has appeared in the San Francisco ChronicleThe Nation, and HuffPo. This is his first novel.
