Published to coincide with the media blitz surrounding the release of the first of the Lord of the Rings Films. A bestseller in the US for 27 years - available for the first time in the UK and for the first time in hardback in the world. Cruelly funny, but like all effective parodies - an affectionate parody. Will appeal to 90 per cent of Tolkien fans. A parody of 'The Book of the Century'. The Lord of the Rings is a publishing phenomenon. 6.99 hardback - excellent value for money.
The Harvard Lampoon are Douglas Kenney and Henry Beard. They wrote Bored of the Rings when they were at Harvard University. They then went on to found The National Lampoon, America's most notorious satirical institution.
