Take Catch 22, add A Confederacy of Dunces and you still are nowhere near the unadulterated comic genius of The Good Soldier Svejk. Written by an alcoholic hobo, his adventures have become the stuff of Czech legend. Love! Love! Love! ~ Reviewed by Charles Bottomley

Playful and tragic, rude and pious...and sometimes both at once. There is no more scintillating portrait of the Middle Ages and its people - who turn out to be a cut more similar to us than you would think. ~ Reviewed by Charles Bottomley

Like drinking and self-destruction? Who doesn't?! Widely considered one of the best novels ever written, this really is the last word in going in style. Pour yourself a stiff one - this is one helluva book! ~ Reviewed by Charles Bottomley
