Simon’s also an author and a regular contributor to The New Yorker. He’s written 7 books. Seven! Dude hasn’t even turned 35 yet.
His latest is a book called Hits and Misses. It’s a collection of short stories. Simon was nice enough to come by the Bullseye studios to read a few including one called “Riding Solo: The Oatsy Story” which is about… well…let’s see, here…
They say history is written by the victors. Celebrating the exploits of so-called great men. The Washingtons. The Lincolns. The Paul Reveres. And history is never, ever, written by the horses these great men rode.
You can get Simon’s new book at most major book retailers and you can watch his newest show, Miracle Workers on TBS.
