“Is Superman Circumcised?” Wins Contest for Oddest Book Title of the Year

“Is Superman Circumcised? – The Complete Jewish History of the World’s Greatest Hero” by author Roy Schwartz has cut through the competition to claim the 2021 Diagram Prize for Oddest Book of the Year, earning a 51% share of the public vote. The title – an academic study on the Jewish origins of the iconic DC Comics character – flew faster than a speeding bullet to quickly grab the number one spot in the polls when the public vote was first announced in early November, a lead it never relinquished. This is just the third time since voting for the Diagram Prize was opened to the public in 2000 that a winner has earned more than a 50% share, following 2018’s “The Joy of Waterboiling” and 2011’s magisterial “Cooking with Poo”.
