About this product
- DescriptionAuthor Titus Jensen is waiting for his big break. But he's middle-aged, has rather a fondness for alcohol and one seems to take him seriously eugh. He makes ends meet by giving public readings from obscure books at festivals across Sweden which is okay, but he can't help thinking there has to be more to life for an author of his quality - Eddie X is cool. Eddie X is hip. Eddie X is a hit with the ladies and loves being the centre of attention. A radical poet and regular on the festival circuit, he can't help thinking there has to be more to life for a talented, good-looking man like himself - One night, after a successful event at which Titus reads from The Diseases of Swedish Monarchs and Eddie X waxes lyrical to the thrashing tones of metal band The Tourettes, the unlikely pair get horribly drunk together and hatch a plan. There's only one thing for a budding writer to do to get worldwide recognition: write the best book in the world - a book so amazing that it will end up on all the bestseller lists in every category imaginable: thriller, self-help, cookery, business, dieting - a book that combines everything in one! But there is only room for one such amazing book and as the alcohol-induced haze clears Titus and Eddie X both realise they are t willing to share the limelight. Who will win the race to write the best book in the world, and to what unimaginable lengths will they go to get there first - ? Hilariously quirky and witty, The Best Book in the World will take you on a meandering race to the finish line, throwing plenty of satirical punches along the way.
