Top ten truly bad books

Robin Ince is an award winning comedian and writer in the UK. He won the Time Out Award for Outstanding Achievement in Comedy for his show The Book Club which was also nominated for a British Comedy Award and hailed by The Observer as "the outstanding literary event of the Edinburgh Festival."

For the Guardian, he named a top ten list of truly bad books. One title on the list:
Major Major by Terry Major-Ball

This is the delightful autobiography of John Major's older brother. It is an image of an England seen predominantly in Ealing films. Terry fears women and Butlins, though comes to like them both. He knows how to make a cooked breakfast in the microwave too and he'll tell you how. Remember to prick the egg yolk before microwaving though, or it will explode.
Read about another book on the list.
