Friday's Quote of the Day

10:16 UK time, Friday, 22 February 2008

bookseller.gifEvery weekday the Magazine picks a quote from the news and displays it on the Magazine index.

'I was Tortured by the Pygmy Love Queen' - Short-listed for Oddest Book Title of the Year, by the Bookseller magazine.

No, not an autobiographical confessional by Jasper McCutcheon, but a story that does very much what it says on the tin. "Navy pilot Henry is forced to crash-land in a rainforest where a group of evil pygmies and their Caucasian queen find him, and subject him to erotic tortures," says the marketing blurb.

Other nominees for the coveted prize include If You Want Closure in Your Relationship, Start with Your Legs; Cheese Problems Solved and How to Write a How to Write Book. Some good bedtime reading there then.
