Bored Ape Yacht Club member, Jenkins the Valet announced that his project, Jenkins the Valet: The Writer's Room, has found a 10 time NY Times best-selling author to write the first ever community-generative book.
“When we launched the Writer’s Room, we pledged to find a NYT Bestselling Author. Well, we found a 10X NYT Bestseller,” Jenkins tweeted earlier today. “We’re pleased to announce Neil Strauss is writing my debut novel, in collaboration with the Writer’s Room. Join us + Neil at 11am EST for a Town Hall in Discord.”
Neil Straus is an American author journalist and ghostwriter, according to his Wikipedia page. Strauss is best known for his book, The Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artist. The book focused on his experiences in the “seduction community” in an effort to become a “pick-up artist.”

We are so excited for Neil to do the same with the apes and mutants that our community licenses to the project.”
