HarperCollins is proud to announce the upcoming release of URRRNNGUH: The Sounds People Make in Transit, Volume 1, a collection of involuntary sounds that people make while riding on public transportation systems around the country. Author topherchris secured the three-figure deal after agreeing to stop harassing HarperCollins officials and submit to anger management counseling.
“After months of time spent on public transit systems all across this great land simply to get from one point to another, I’m gratified that I’ll be able to finally put all those wasted hours to good use by making a powerful statement about America’s regional and cultural differences when it comes to the involuntary sounds some people make in these types of social situations,” said topherchris.
