Winner of the 26th annual Diagram Prize for the Oddest Book Title Of The Year – an unexpurgated guide for men to every poop-related dating eventuality. To wit:

Not an instruction manual as the title might imply, this is a practical guide to confronting every possible problem or eventuality one may encounter when wooing. Inside you’ll learn exactly what to do (through explanatory text and useful diagrams) in a variety of practical, real-life situations, from feeling the call of nature as you walk in the woods with your paramour to what to do if you block her toilet with a monster mud-out.

UPDATE: Fair play in fairness to Biggkm in comments, who sez:

Traditional Mandarin speaker here. Fairly sure it means hostile environment. Although if you type in out in pinyin and put it through google translate it comes up as “Hostile Hairy eyes”. terrifying

Irish writer Darragh McManus has brought out a new book, The Polka Dot Girl which offers a unique twist on the classic noir-style mystery – all the characters are female….”Sam Spade in lipstick and a dress”.

And that’s not all.

Buy The Polka Dot Girl and you’ll be entered into a draw, run by me under the strictest conditions of fairness and probity. And the prize is: I’ll name a character after you in a future book. A published book, not just a file I have lying around my computer marked “Completely Unpublishable Avant-Garde Junk Prose-Poem.” Although that does sound good, now that I think about it. It may not be a major character, but it’ll be someone cool, nice, interesting. It won’t be a villain or a character who has something embarrassing happen to them or anything like that. It’ll be good.”

Buy the book here.
