Normally I love the blog Awful Library Books. It showcases “a collection of public library holdings that we find amusing and maybe questionable for public libraries trying to maintain a current and relevant collection.” In other words, it makes fun of out-of-date and otherwise risible books that should be culled.
So you can imagine my surprise when ALB singled out Looking Forward to Being Attacked for expulsion. It’s a treasure, a gem of the highest order. Just look at the table of contents (here). “Chapter One: You’ll Never Enjoy Being Attacked If You Don’t Change Your Attitude.” Thought-provoking. “Chapter Four: Life Affords Few Pleasures That Can Equal The Striking Of Vulnerable Areas.” How true.
