    For Who The Bell Tolls

    Or it could be a prequel to that well-known Simon Cowell talent show? (To take it to the lowest common denominator - oh! echoing your maths idea here!

    The Way We Live No.

    Say 'no', and do nothing. Dig in your heels and refuse to co-operate. If belligerent refusal doesn't come naturally to you, this book by A Trollop will guide you towards the nuanced way of life that means 'NO'.

    It kind of works with French novels too: Beaudelaire's little known oeuvre Les Fleurs du Ma, where the author's mother is given armfuls of flowers. Stretching the point a bit, we have Camus with 'The Outside', where he extols the virtues of the great outdoors.
