The Complete Book of Aunts by Rupert Christiansen

This delightful little book would make a great present for the favorite aunt in your life. The author covers famous (and infamous) aunts in history and literature, categorizing them along the way as Mothering Aunts, Heroic Aunts, X-Rated Aunts, Brand-Name Aunts, Fairy-tale Aunts, Damned Bad Aunts (remember Bertie Wooster's aunts? enough said), and Exotic Aunts.

This book is good for quite the snicker - but a sympathetic snicker.
