Most top-selling tales aren't nearly so cerebral. The Talking Bookshop in London reports that their "adult" list is selling well, with such pulse- throbbing titles as Ian McShane on Tropic of Cancer and My Life and Loves read by Leslie Grantham. Leslie Grantham? Or curl up with theatrical superman Steven Berkoff, giving Sexus a bit of clipped menace (Prelude pounds 14.99). Book News has it on good authority that you can get a powerful sexual charge just from listening to Mr Berkoff's answering machine.
Random House, meanwhile, has put out Nicholson Baker's pervy The Fermata, read by American actor Will Paton. What about a audio version of Baker's telephone sex novel Vox with books-on-tape supremo Martin Jarvis and voice- over queen Miriam Margolyes as the horny conversationalists?
