From the Publisher"Seriously fun. Using an inviting, conversational style, Michelle Witte makes doorstops like War and Peace and Great Expectations sound like rollicking romps. I wish I had The Faker's Guide to the Classics instead of those boring old Cliffs Notes guides when I was in high school and college. Maybe I would have been inspired to read some of the classics I was assigned."
—Andrew Shaffer, author of Literary Rogues
“This entertaining, informative, and pop-culture-reference-laden take on literature will completely replace that to-read pile of books collecting dust on your desk. Once your home is tidy and all the important characters and plot points are in your brain, book club hosting duties will be a breeze!”
—Robb Pearlman, author of Spoiler Alert
"Michelle Witte's dazzlingly charming summaries will give you both hilarious knowledge and plenty of time to send Beowulf a friend request. If you don't have room on your bookshelf for this, you need a bigger bookshelf."
—Rachel Eddey, author of Running of the Bride
"Cliffs Notes, Schmiffs Notes, give me Michelle's notes! She makes the cool books even cooler and the crappy books considerably less crappy. I mean, she even made reading about Middlemarch enjoyable, and if you've read it—which I haven't and now don't have to, thank goodness—you know that's saying something."
—Alan Goldsher, author of Paul Is Undead and My Favorite Fangs
