Literary mathematics

I cut and pasted this from ABE Book’s Facebook page. It’s a very clever, fun puzzle.

Arthur C. Clarke’s Space Odyssey minus Dodie Smith’s Dalmatians, plus Adrian Mole’s age (when he first started his diary), plus the platform # where Harry catches the train to Hogwarts, plus Joseph Heller’s Catch _________ plus Thomas Pynchon’s Lot _________. Now subtract the number of chapters in Julian Barnes’ History of the World and you should have the title of another book = ________ which is a novel by whom?
