The Oddest Book Title of the Year

The annual Diagram Prize for the oddest book title has been awarded to How to Poo on a Date: The Lovers' Guide to Toilet Etiquette. The winner was decided by votes, and the book by Mats & Enzo barely defeated Are Trout South African? by Duncan Brown and The Origin of Feces by David Waltner-Toews.

The rest of the shortlist was made up of early frontrunner Working Class Cats: The Bodega Cats of New York City by Chris Balsiger ands Erin Canning (One Peace Books), with 14%; Pie-ography: Where Pie Meets Biography by Jo Packham (Quarry) with 6%; and How to Pray When You're Pissed at God by Ian Punnett (Harmony Books), with 4% of the votes.

Horace Bent, The Bookseller’s diarist and the custodian of the prize, said: “The public have chosen wisely. Not only have they picked a title that truly captures the spirit of the prize, they have selected a manual that can help one through life’s more challenging and delicate moments.”

The winning authors have been nominated for the Diagram Prize twice before, for books with a similar theme. This year, they are number one for a book about number two. Although there is no actual prize, the honor does bring a bit of publicity. -via Time Newsfeed
