Tucker Max is a New York Times best-selling author, producer and screenwriter, entrepreneur and publisher, and occasional blogger. His first book, I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell, not only hit No. 1 on the Times list, but was also made into a major motion picture; it, and Max himself, are also credited with founding the modern literary genre known as “fratire.”
But in 2012, Max retired publicly from telling tales of drunken debauchery, in his book Hilarity Ensues. Since then, he has gone on to found the wildly successful publishing company Scribe Writing (formerly Book in a Box)—which helps entrepreneurs and authors write, self-publish, and market their own best-sellers (their tagline is brilliantly “we turn ideas into books”)—and ghostwrite Tiffany Haddish’s best-selling memoir The Last Black Unicorn.
