Games: Odd Books
Friday 14 November 1997
Seasoned observers were generally of the opinion that this year's crop of odd titles were less curious than many from past years. Considerable doubts have been expressed about whether this year's winner - which is already known to cognoscenti as Pocket Sex Joy - is truly fit to stand on the same shelf as such notable past winners as Greek Rural Postmen and their Cancellation Codes (which took the award last year ahead of God's Chewable Vitamin C for the Spirit and Old Tractors and the Men Who Love Them), or the 1992 winner, How to Avoid Huge Ships.
Other worthy titles that have gained this singular honour include Oral Sadism and the Vegetarian Personality, Versailles: the View from Sweden, and Highlights in the History of Concrete.
