Writer, director and publicist Josh Mitchell is originally from Boston, but currently lives in the heart of Hollywood. In July of 2014, he published his first novel, The Dude Who Did Dictionaries, the story of a man who leaves his high-paying job as a advertising copywriter to instead work in a bookstore and attempt to write the world’s first all-sexual dictionary. A sprawling, gritty depiction of a recession-afflicted world, The Dude Who Did Dictionaries is a gripping account of one man’s fatalistic downward spiral.
In August of 2014, Mitchell released Pissing on the Pulse of the Planet, a book that offers unique musings on sex, politics and pop culture, all viewed through the lens of Mitchell’s subversive comedic wit.
Mitchell recently wrote, directed and starred in Lack of Cockery, a feature film about a venture capitalist who finds himself questioning his perspective on identity, life and love.
