Wouldn’t you love to read “Cat on a Hot Tin Drum”?

… are double-barreled book titles:

Horton Hears a Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wolf

The Jungle Book of Mormon

I Sing the Body Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test

But how did they leave out:

The American Way of Death in the Afternoon

Logan’s Run Silent, Run Deep

and, most of all

Moby Dick and Jane
