A Simple War And Peace Won't Do Nowadays

A Short History of Tractors in Ukraine. Everyman's Guide to Scientific Living. Special Topics in Calamity Physics. Just when you thought novel titles couldn't get quirkier, along comes The Arsonist's Guide to Writers' Homes in New England (which, says Ron Charles, is "a mixture of Mark Twain and Jasper Fforde").


  • You forgot Alexander McCall Smith's offerings.

    I've noticed trends in titles. The last time wacko titles like this were in vogue was the late Sixties / Seventies
