    The Big Rusty Lie
    by Ryan Speck

    Trích:
    [TABLE="width: 100%"]

    [TD="class: alt2, bgcolor: #F4F2ED"]From the back cover:

    "Bernardo Walterhaus is a detective on a mission: find a missing heiress that no one else can seem to locate. But this is no ordinary detective. Bernardo Walterhaus is the self-proclaimed "world's greatest detective," on the run from forced imprisonment in the Lombardo Institute For The Mentally Sub-Standard and yearning to save the day. The Mayor of Oberwalz is trying to put him back in the Institute (and wants him dead), his ex-partner hates his guts (and wants him dead),
    there are mercenaries following him (who want him dead), and he's hours behind everyone else on the case. But that won't stop Bernardo Walterhaus.

    Armed with cunning wit, tremendous luck, and an unerring ability to find trouble, Bernardo will solve the case with the help of his driver and bodyguard, Ching Dic-Tofon, his favorte cab driver, "Sugah" Brown, and a pack of "Oberwalz's finest," the most vulgar and violent cops you could have on your side.

    Bernardo will find an unlikely solution, without a clue or a good idea, as long as the mercenaries, gnomes, orderlies, exploding castles, fake Germans, angry competitors, plane crashes, burning office buildings, board meetings, boiling chocolate, fratboys, and criminal masterminds don't get him first."


    An absurdist hardboiled detective parody in the spirit of Douglas Adams and Max Barry, with a helping of "It's Always Sunny In Philidelphia".

    #2Why Do Men Have Nipples? - Mark Leyner and Billy Goldberg
    Why Do Men Have Nipples? Hundreds of Questions You'd Only Ask a Doctor After Your Third Martini

    by Mark Leyner and Billy Goldberg
    [​IMG]

    Trích:
    [TABLE="width: 100%"]

    [TD="class: alt2, bgcolor: #F4F2ED"]Urban legends and perennial wonders get a witty treatment in this lighthearted guide to largely inconsequential yet intriguing aspects of the human body. Leyner, a novelist whose writing appears regularly in the New Yorker and GQ, and New York physician Goldberg address food and the body (does coffee stunt your growth?), "body oddities" (what are goose bumps?), folk remedies (does breast milk cure warts?), drugs (does marijuana help glaucoma?), bathroom humor (why can you ignite a fart?), medical media (is the show ER accurate?), old wives tales (can lip balm be addictive?) and aging (why do old ladies grow beards?). And then there's the sex chapter-definitely the one where the subtitle is most applicable, with questions like "can people in wheelchairs still have sex?" and "do the kind of underpants men wear affect their fertility?" The book includes e-mail interactions between the authors, which are sometimes funny. Some of the authors' answers are unsatisfactory and, as a whole, this is much more of a humor book than a health one. The truly curious will find better, more in-depth answers on medical Web sites, but those looking for a good laugh will have some fun with this book.[/TD]

    Mình có biết 1 tác giả ng Anh viết chuyện hài rất hay đó là Stephen Clarke. Ông ta là nhà báo và đã sống tại Pháp trong vòng hơn 10 năm. Hầu hết các tác phẩm của ông đều mang đặc tính hài hước kiểu Anh. Và trong mỗi tác phẩm đều có sự so sánh rất ngộ nghĩnh về văn hóa Anglo-saxon và văn hóa Pháp. Bạn Ashn có biết mình có thể tìm ebook dạng prc của tác giả này không?[/TD]
