Following on the post from earlier this week about some of the emperor's new novels that have made the Booker Prize longlist, we find some hilariously accurate "real" titles for a lot of books that dot both bestseller lists and book club discussions. My favorite is Middle-Aged English Professor Inexplicably Attractive to Lithe Young Student. More than a few books that don't have that sequence as their main narrative still feature it as one of the storyline features. There's gotta be some reason Robert Langdon keeps partnering up with the young hawties that follow him around while Dan Brown has him uncover history that doesn't exist and save the world.
