Description
What do Homer and Jay-Z have in common? Can big book sales lead to mass suicide? Who elevated insults to an art form? How did starving writers pay the bills? When did literature get sexy? And why do some detectives use their minds and others their fists? This breezy and graphically driven tour of literature is full of delicious tidbits on readers and writers, and their works. Alex Palmer has fun with such topics as writers' bad habits and why most novelists shouldn't quit their day jobs; the battle for fun in kids' books and the follies of censorship; gothic fiction and ghost stories and literary villains and why we love them.
