Any home with a shelf full of books is bound to have an oddball in the bunch. Some books are truly outstanding, and some are just plain weird.

Rare book expert Edward Brooke-Hitching takes us to that end of the shelf in The Madman's Library: The Strangest Books, Manuscripts and Other Literary Curiosities from History.

If the Qur'an written in the blood of Saddam Hussein is too gross, consider the lawsuit filed on behalf of the Devil against Jesus in the 15th century. The author of this book gives us an overview of those others.
