Byrne did the art for a collection of PAD columns (and how in holy f*ck did that come to be?) I'm sure illustrations would be included. But prose would be alot quicker. Didn't he say the memoirs he had written were a few hundred thousand words rushed out in two months or so?
I can't recall any sort of "time frame" in which he said he wrote his memoirs. I'd hope he wouldn't "rush" anything when it comes to this type of project.
The PAD collection was Peter David's collection of But I Digress columns (and it was a great read, by the way). JB contributed an image that was placed on the back cover depicting JB himself making use of a paper shredder to destroy But I Digress columns. Hilarious & showed that PAD was a good sport.
