Don't Read this Book If You're Stupid

Front Cover
Vintage, 2001 - Europe - 247 pages
A series of humourous short stories starting in misery and dropping towards despair. One character has a quest to read every book ever written in English, devouring them two at a time. The aphoristic tales are sandwiched between two novellas and deliver an apocalyptic vision with a grim smile.
