Now let me explain. Do you want to read something hilarious? Then you select the “Funny <-> Serious” tab and move an arrow to just how funny you want your book to be.

Kafka on the Shore
by Haruki MurakamiThis book is for readers who are happy to give their authors plenty of poetic license and for whom talking cats and villages that disappear into magical forests are perfectly normal literary events.
