You may not know Josh Ostrovsky’s real name, but chances are you’ve liked many of his posts on Instagram. As the creator of the hilarious, meme-packed account @TheFatJewish, Josh “Fat Jew” Ostrovsky’s bizarrely relatable posts and laugh-out-loud captions have earned him 4.3 million followers—and now he’s putting that humor into 3-D form with a new book called Money Pizza Respect. EW reveals the cover exclusively below, in which Ostrovsky and his trademark vertical ponytail channel late Apple founder Steve Jobs.

In this ridiculous collection of images and personal essays, Ostrovsky chronicles the wacky stories of his life, from hiring prostitutes in order to reenact scenes from Braveheart, to giving free “spinning classes” on parked CitiBikes in New York City.

“I’m the illegitimate son of Bette Midler and Steven Segal, two New York Times bestselling authors,” Ostrovsky tells EW. “So should anyone really be surprised that I’ve written a book?”

Check out the cover below. Money Pizza Respect hits shelves October 27.
