The Book Lover's Joke Book

by Alex Johnson - £9.99  British Library Publishing (2022)
hardback    ISBN 13: 9780712354516 | ISBN 10: 0712354514

I slipped over in the library this morning. It was the non-friction section.
The Book Lover’s Joke Book is the funniest book about books you’ll ever read. You’ll find jokes about writers, agents, publishers, librarians, grammar, poetry, bookcases, and lightbulbs. There are rib-ticklers for typographers, crackers for critics, and badly foxed quips about antiquarian bookshops.
Here too are the best literary April Fool’s (the joke’s on you), rejection letters (the joke’s on the publisher), cookbook jests (the joke’s a bit crumby) and wardrobe puns (the joke’s Narnia business). This delightful literary celebration will make every bibliophile laugh out loud, even in the library.
I love telling people spoilers about The Picture of Dorian Gray.
