Add published author to Chris Kluwe's ever-expanding resume that already includes NFL punter, bassist and activist. "Beautifully Unique Sparkleponies" is scheduled for publication by Little, Brown and Company on June 25, 2013. A collection of uncensored personal essays, the book will delve into issues ranging from faith and government to human rights and professional sports. "Chris Kluwe's book is just like Chris Kluwe," Editor John Parsley said in a release. "Sharp-tongued, forthright and committed to exposing and eviscerating our society's density as quickly and completely as possible." Kluwe rose to national prominence with his scathing public letter to a Maryland state politician that immediately went viral. He actively campaigned against the Minnesota constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage and has since appeared on the Colbert Report and The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "(I)t's a collection of uncensored essays and stories about whatever I feel like," said Kluwe on his Twitter account, which also confirmed the release date. He used the phrase "beautifully unique sparklepony" in his re-write of the original viral letter so it could be more widely published. The original was laced with profanity.
