My copy of TSNOTD says, at the top of the front cover,
that it's the "most hilarious book of its kind since John
Irving's The Water-Method Man and A Confederacy
Of Dunces by John Kenned Toole." I keep thinking this
is odd, since to the best of my knowledge neither of
those are remotely sci-fi, but it might be an angle you
could take with your SO. Does he perchance like
Irving? :-)
