Strange book titles

November 8, 2009

Have you ever seen a book whose title makes you think “What on earth is that about?”

I did this week, in a charity shop.

“Salmon fishing in Yemen”  All I know about (the) Yemen is it’s in the middle-east, mostly desert and extremely lawless and dangerous.  So, I wonder what the book is really about.

Any more examples, dear readers?

 

Edited today when I caught the end of a review of this book on Radio 4 this morning. a quick Google search revealed it was published nearly 3 years ago and is an extremely funny and readable novel. “Yes minister meets The Monarch of the Glen” or “a cross between Yes Minister and The Office” ran the reviews.

I should have bought it.
