Open Book wants to know what your funniest book is and why

Open Book is celebrating funny books and funny writing.

We'd love to hear from you about YOUR favourite funny books and to kick us off, here are a couple of Mariella's favourites - William Boyd's Stars and Bars and Poor Cow by the sadly overlooked Nell Dunn.

Do you agree and what are your suggestions for books that are profoundly funny and why?

Leave a comment below or you can contact us via the Open Book website.

Fiona Couper is editor of Open Book and Bookclub
