Today is the official publication day for BUM FODDER: An Absorbing History of Toilet Paper by Richard Smyth.
Early reviews suggest this will be a big seller, especially in the run up to Christmas. Best of British magazine features Bum Fodder in their current issue (November 2012), and Saga magazine features a fascinating column of facts about toilet paper taken from Smyth’s book.
“It has to be the ultimate accessory for the loo: Richard Smyth’s fascinating time about toilet paper that flushes out reams of intriguing facts.” – ‘Saga’ magazine, November 2012.
Available now as an e-book and in hardback, this is a fascinating insight into something that we use every day, but that is rarely discussed. How was loo roll used in espionage? How does it relate to corn on the cob? And what have mussels got to do with it? Richard Smyth answers the questions you never thought to ask about the product we can’t live without.
