The 5-Minute Iliad and Other Instant Classics : Who has the time or the patience to read War and Peace these days? Greg Nagan cuts to the chase, offering a witty and irreverent satire on western literature, in The Five-Minute Iliad and Other Instant Classics: Great Books for the Short Attention Span. These 15 parodies from The Iliad to On the Road hilariously trace western civilization from Homer to Kerouac, breathlessly, recklessly travelling from ancient Greece to postwar America. Whether you have read these great books or not, you are sure to find this collection entertaining - and wry illustrations enhance the clever and amusing text.
