Deceptive Books

This is the first book I ever noticed on Thomas's bookshelf when I visited him back when we were just best friends. I only saw the spine back then and wondered what the son of a minister and a theology professor was doing with a book about the madness of God! Obviously I have since learnt Danish so I now realize that contrary to my fist impression that it was going to be some exciting work of rebellion, it is in fact merely a cookery book entitled 'Good food'. But it still makes me smile every time I see it! (And for anyone who is unfamiliar with how compound nouns are formed in mainland European Germanic languages, don't you just love the length of that word in the sub-heading?)
