Publisher's Summary

From the people who bought you The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed out of the Window and Disappeared another quirky, thought-provoking, Swedish comic novel with attitude.

Titus Jensen is waiting for his big break, but he’s middle aged, has a fondness for alcohol, and no one takes him seriously.

He makes ends meet by giving public readings from obscure books at festivals. He can’t help thinking there has to be more to life for an author of his quality…

Eddie X is cool, hip, 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 the unlikely pair get drunk and hatch a plan. To get worldwide recognition they should write the best book in the world – a book so amazing that it will end up on all the bestseller lists in every category: thriller, self-help, cookery, business, dieting…

But there is only room for one such amazing book; Titus and Eddie X are not willing to share the limelight, so who will win the race?

Steven Pacey has read over 100 audiobooks, ranging from Joe Abercombie, Susan Hill, Martin Amis and James Herbert to C. S. Lewis and Julia Donaldson. He brings his acclaimed versatility to an unforgettable cast of characters in this sharp satire on the world of writing and publishing.
