Curiosities of Literature by John Sutherland
Odds and ends of literature from who ate what to whose habits were the oddest to who died where and who put product placement into their books. A little bit of everything and all of it fascinating.
Genre: non-fiction, history
A lovely book for book lovers. If you've ever wondered about the criminal records of some authors or which author had the biggest brain, this is a great read. Truth is often stranger than fiction and the more you read about some literary figures the more the world of the writer looks like a strange, crazy place.
