Format: Hardcover
My mother bought a copy of this self-published book directly from the author, who was selling them door-to-door back around the time I was born. She did it out of pity, the moreso (as she later realized) after she started reading it. I tried reading it in my early teens, and tried again in my late teens, and I think I actually gave it another glance a few years ago when visiting my parents. (They've kept every book they've ever bought, including the 1967 set of Encyclopedia Brittanica.)

I am sure that there are worse books, but in terms of painfully stilted dialog, this sets a standard that is hard to beat. It is bad enough that, read aloud properly to an audience that has already started drinking, it could be hilarious.
