Dear Luke, We Need to Talk, Darth by John Moe
Rate this book

Moe is a bit of a one-trick pony, but it is a very very funny trick, and I have rarely laughed as hard as I did at this book. These are all letters to and from various figures in pop culture (Luke Skywalker, Jon Bon Jovi, the teacher in Peanuts, ...)...more
