In 2009 it was How NOT to Write a Novel ('A hilarious, wickedly observed and deeply useful guide' Observer). In 2010 it's Read This Next - Sandra Newman and Howard Mittlemark have written the perfect book for anyone who has ever struggled to choose what to read next. But this is far more than a guide for book groups.
Covering 600 books ranging from The Shock Doctrine to Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, and exploring all the important issues like how to tell the difference between Naomis Wolf and Klein, whether anyone really likes Emma Bovary, what makes a really good loo book and whether it's really wrong to marry for money, Read This Next reminds you exactly why you love reading and then makes you want to go out and read lots more. And what's more, it's very, very funny.
