Om Who's Afraid of Jane Austen? How to Real

Ever wondered how some people seem to have an opinion on every book ever published? Nowadays, there are so many books: how can anyone be well read anymore? Well, help is at hand. Let Henry Hitchings educate you in the invaluable skill of literary bluffing in this survivor's guide to talking about books you haven't read. With tips on how to bluff with confidence using quotable insights and invaluable trivia, Henry Hitchings covers all the great books you ought to have read but haven't got round to yet. If you want to be able to hold your own in a debate about Stephen Hawking or Philip Roth or perhaps you find Shakespeare or Dostoevsky intimidating, then look no further. Including literary heavyweights such as Ulysses, Bleak House and War and Peace this guide will equip you with all the bookish information you need to bluff your way through any scenario, be it a vital exam, an in-depth conversation at the pub or chatting up the potential love of your life. Contents includes, Jane Austen, Shakespeare, Henry James, James Joyce, Proust, Homer, Virgil, Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, Dickens, various contemporary writers, the Bible, the Koran, fairy tales, select bestsellers and some poetry.

'Opinionated, funny...its main aim is to ignite a love of reading - in as British and unmawkish a way as possible' 'Entertaining' 'Witty and anecdotal' 'From Shakespeare to Proust it's great fun to dip into' 'I slipped into this book with immense pleasure...an excellent miniature history of books...and it's funny too' 'Hitchings is an amiable guide and includes useful tips' 'Fascinating' 'I won't mince words. Read it and talk about it. A very smart (and funny) book.' 'Hitchings's whistlestop literary guide is often insightful and his advice to talking to actors is hilariously deadpan' 'I slipped into this book with immense pleasure...an excellent miniature history of books...and it's funny too'
