Judging a book by its improbable phrases  MAY 21 2009

A clever book quiz: can you guess the book based on the statistically improbably phrases that appear in the text? This one should be pretty easy:

medical attache, annular fusion, entertainment cartridge, improbably deformed, howling fantods, feral hamsters, dawn drills, tough nun, professional conversationalist, new bong, ceiling bulged, metro boston, tennis academy, red leather coat, soupe aux pois, red beanie, addicted man, magnetic video, littler kids, little rotter, technical interview, police lock, oral narcotics, sober time, veiled girl

(thx, sk)
