Pre-order a copy of “Mad Men” lothario Roger Sterling’s autobiography, “Sterling’s Gold”

Pin it

This is actually a real thing now, apparently. Throughout the recently concluded fourth season of Mad Men, we watched as Roger Sterling — the drunk, impetuous, but still pretty hot senior partner of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce — worked on an obviously unnecessary and probably pretty awful autobiography entitled Sterling's Gold. The little snippets we heard (like when he recalled that Mrs. Blankenship, Don's aged secretary, was a "queen of perversions") convinced of us two things: one, that Sterling cannot write. Two, that we needed this book.

And wouldn't you know it? It appears to be coming out next month. From the Amazon description:

Sterling's Gold covers it all: business, marriage, and the taste of success made sweeter with a glass of something strong.

I still can't quite believe that this is actually going to be a book that I can physically hold in my hands. Matthew Weiner doesn't seem like the kind of guy to go in for such shenanigans. But it's true: for the low price of $11.43, you can finally keep the wit and wisdom of Roger Sterling on your nightstand.

(Side note: one of the "related" topics on the Amazon forums for this book is "If Iran or Hizbollah attacked Israel with a nuke and killed millions of Jews would the US retaliate?" Just FYI.)
