And the Winner Is!

At this time of year many publications run competitions to find the book with the strangest title . I decided to see if  there were any books with unusual titles in the ‘Education in Literature Collection’.

The Lake of Dead Languages by Carol Goodman was quite unusual but the oddest title I came across was Stripping Penguins Bare by Michael Carson.

Martin Benson is a student at Aberystwyth University in the 1960’s and he is struggling with his sexual orientation. A struggle which is compounded by the fact that homosexuality is illegal and his Roman Catholic upbringing.

The majority of novels can be borrowed for 3 weeks. DVDs ,which are usually on a 1 week loan, may be borrowed before the 23rd December and returned on the 6th January 2015.
