Cheese Problems Solved

The Bookseller Magazine (UK) has announced the shortlist for its Diagram Prize for Oddest Book Title of the Year. Naturally, as a bookseller myself, I am incredibly intrigued by this. Here are the contenders:
  • I Was Tortured by the Pygmy Love Queen, by Jasper McCutcheon
  • How to Write a How to Write Book, by Brian Paddock
  • Are Women Human? And Other International Dialogues, by Catharine A. MacKinnon
  • Cheese Problems Solved, by P.L.H. McSweeney
  • If You Want Closure in Your Relationship, Start With Your Legs, by Big Boom
  • People who Mattered in Southend and Beyond: From King Canute to Doctor Feelgood, by Dee Gordon
The public is invited to vote for the winner, so let your sentiments be known. As for me, Cheese Problems Solved wins hands down.
