Feel thatWar and Peacewent on a bit? Wish there were more laughs inThe Catcher in the Rye?Very cross thatThe Power of Onehad no speedboat chases? ThenSmithereensis for you. At only 300 pages you can knock it off duringThe Bachelor IV(in fact, that's how we'd prefer you to read it).And laughs?What about them?Well, does it have any?Of course it does - it's written by one of Australia's funniest men.Oh, John Clarke?No, not John Clarke.I like John Clarke. So do I, but this is written by Shaun Micallef. And as for speedboat chases, I'm afraid there's not even one. I don't know why I raised it really.Yes,Smithereensis a book that belongs on every bookshelf. Why? Well, it'd certainly be good for sales. Think of it. Twenty million copies. We'd make a freaking fortune.
