This candy crushed the competition.
“Strangers Have the Best Candy” by Camano Island author Margaret Meps Schulte beat out contenders to snag Oddest Book Title of the Year by The Bookseller of London. The self-published book of humorous essays was awarded the Diagram Prize.
In response, Schulte wrote this limerick: “I am glad to have worldwide acclaim, In the self-published, dog-eat-dog game, It’s my title, thank god, That is prize-winning odd, Not my writing, my looks, or my name.”
