About The Book

Which author had the heaviest brain? What was the original title of 1984? When did cigarettes first appear in English literature? And, while we’re at it, who wrote the first Western, and is there any link between asthma and literary genius? Sutherland’s irreverent literary exploration illuminates every topic imaginable from author advances to Civil War literature to Victorian sex to odd things eaten by literary characters (think Patrick Bateman’s girlfriend in American Psycho). This is a treasure trove of fascinating information for all book lovers.
