50 Shades of Grey spoof outsells original

London, Mon, 24 Dec 2012 ANI

London, Dec. 24 (ANI): A clever parody of this year's most talked about racy novel '50 Shades of Grey,' has outsold the original in the past two weeks.

'Fifty Sheds of Grey' - one of the dozens of satires published following the success of the 'Fifty Shades' trilogy, has sold 41,000 copies in the last two weeks, while E.L. James's book sold 29,000, the Daily Mail reported.

Written under the pseudonym Colin Trevor Grey, the satire tells the story of a middle-aged man "thrust into an illicit world of pleasure and pain," after his wife reads 'Fifty Shades.'

The man finds himself caught between his wife's enthusiasm to try new things in the bedroom and "the love between a man and his shed."

The novel spawned from a Twitter account that used gardening-related euphemisms to mimic the plotline of the erotic trilogy.

Grey, who has kept his identity a secret, has described himself as a Yorkshire-based author in his 40s. (ANI)
