Ever wondered how some people seem to have an opinion on every book ever published?

Henry Hitchings introduces the invaluable skill of literary bluffing in this survivor's guide to talking about books you haven't read.

This is a fun read, if you like this sort of thing.

The author deals briefly with Austen, Virgil, Homer, Joyce, Dante, Shakespeare, the Bible, the Qur'an, Proust, Tolstoy, Dostoevski, James, Cervantes, Murasaki, Aesop, Chaucer, the Arabian Nights, etc.

It is full of titbits regarding and their work, all intended to provide the person knowing these things with the 'necessary information' to impress others about books you haven't read . . .
