Relationship Book Wins Oddest Title of the Year Award
A self-help book has won
an award for the Oddest Titled Book. The book is called If You Want Closure in Your Relationship, Start With Your Legs, which certainly is odd.
"If You Want Closure in Your Relationship, Start With Your Legs" has won the Diagram Prize for the oddest title of the year, The Bookseller magazine announced Friday. Big Boom, the apparently pseudonymous author, calls it a "self-help book, written by a man for the benefit of women."
It's a book, he writes, that is "raw, honest and about you," distilling "the sweat off my back, the wrinkles in my forehead from anger and thinking all the time."
The title triumphed in a public vote over runner-up "I Was Tortured by the Pygmy Love Queen" and the third-place finisher, "Cheese Problems Solved."
The deputy editor of The Bookseller Joel Rickett says the title of the book is so effective that "you don't even need to read the book itself."
But what does it mean? We're not sure we want to know. But we definitely could use a good book on cheese problem-solving.
