Delightful Things to Read About Before the Snoring Starts

Have you ever found that once you are between the sheets, Madame Bovary is too heavy, magazines are too slippery, and Crime and Punishment is too long?

The Gentleman's Bedside Companion is the answer-a bracing collection of information, humor, and curiosities that will help every man make his mark on the world with panache.

Spanning the arts, sciences, sports, and the opposite sex, topics include:

Bananas as proof of God's existence

Great bits from the Bible

Famous painters and how they died

The Monkees, a potted history

All about submarines

Useful foreign pickup lines

An international swearing dictionary

Let the horizontal reading begin.

About the Author:

Tom Cutler, the son of a sex therapist and a sometime Dominican friar, spent his early manhood in a desultory study of Fine Art and Philosophy at a cloistered university. He began his professional career with a number of false starts as a teacher, set designer, doublebass player, speechwriter, printer, toyshop manager, lyricist, wine waiter, puppet maker, typographer, magazine editor, portrait painter, radio broadcaster, cartoonist, ghost writer, and practicing magician before leaving the rat-race to spend more time with his slippers.

Tom is the author of several humorous books, including 211 Things a Bright Boy Can Do, and two acclaimed songbooks for children. He is the proud owner of a not unlarge handlebar mustache and is a member of the Handlebar (Mustache) Club of Great Britain. In his spare time Tom enjoys murdering Bach on the guitar and staring out to sea.
