Less Ambitious Books

One of the topics that various Twitter People (who are Pod People, but briefer) have been playing around with is that of #lessambitiousbooks. Some of my favorites so far:

The Adequate Gatsby

Where the Mild Things Are

The Facebook Profile of Dorian Gray

Love in the Time of the Common Cold

Room with a Loo

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Commerce*

Being and Somethingness

War and Peace Process**

* Rowling starts getting dangerously close to something like it in Goblet of Fire.

** It really would take a Russian novelist to write a book that long.
