200 Signed Copies of My Year of Flops Available for Pre-Order

Everybody loves a train wreck, and some people were kind enough to film theirs for posterity. Onion AV Club head writer Nathan Rabin's new book My Year of Flops collects dozens of his best-loved fiasco-focused film columns and interviews plus 15 new entries, including a review of Johnny Cash's 1973 tribute to Jesus (Gospel Road) and a minute-by-minute account of the three hour long director's cut of Waterworld. There are 200 signed copies available for pre-order, so click on over to the Onion store today and let the schadenfreude roll.
