Further details

Stewart looks at the phenomenon of toilet books. For some reason, someone, somewhere, thought history, fiction, poetry and the like weren't enough any more, and so they invented celebrity hardbacks, tragic lives and Dan Brown. Stewart takes a look at some of this new lavatory literature, including works by Asher D and Paddy McGinty's Goat, and finds out what would happen if Dan Brown got a job where he had to break bad news.
