Funny Books

Abebooks just listed the Top 10 Funniest Books According to the British. Our little known New Orleans book made the list:

Right Ho, Jeeves by P.G. Wodehouse
Catch -22 by Joseph Heller
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K Jerome
Wilt by Tom Sharpe
A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole
Lucky Jim by Kingsley Amis
The Code of the Woosters by P.G. Wodehouse
Bridget Jones's Diary by Helen Fielding
Adolf Hitler: My Part in His Downfall by Spike Milligan

People often ask me if they would "get" Toole's book if they don't live in New Orleans, well, clearly one doesn't have to even live in the country to find the humor of it all.
