    Combine two written works (fiction or non-fiction) and/or two authors (dead or alive) and title your ideal union.

    The Democracy Delusion

    By Richard Dawkins and Noam Chomski

    Dawkins and Chomski join theories to deconstruct the political process and argue that Americans' faith in democracy is as desperate as a believer's faith in their God(s).


    Just a Thought: Now what was it again?
    By Bill Bryson and Albert Einstein

    Bryson uses his classic wit and stunning simplicity to record and explain what Einstein thinks about his Theory of Relativity...but in the present day once Einstein's been able to catch himself up on the latest discoveries.


    Le Comte de L'ile Diable (The Count of Devil's Island)
    By Edgar Dumas and Henri Charriere

    These two Frenchmen end up writing the best damn tale of escape ever written. C'est magnifique!

    That-err-day
    by Ian McEwan and Tony Blair

    Ian McEwan and Tony Blair team up to write the minutiae of the day Tony Blair took Britain to war in Iraq. Every word, thought, fear, phone call and fart is recorded for twenty a four hour period, starting as Blair gazes out of his bedroom window at 10 Downing Street while wife Cheri sleeps alone.
