4.0 out of 5 stars Southern California = Hot Sun, or Life in a Car, 26 Jan 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Elvis Lives!: And Other Anagrams (Hardcover)
Apparently at some point Jon Agee noticed he could rearrange the letters in his name to get "Gee, Joan," and the next thing you we have this book of anagrams. "Elvis Lives" is easy, but "Ten Elite Brains" from Albert Einstein is pretty good and anyone with a college student knows a dormitory is a "dirty room." Of course, the longer the anagram the more impressive, so by the time Agee turns "The best things in life are free" into "Nail-biting refreshes the feet" you are going to be sold on this endeavor. There are sixty anagrams in this book, accompanied by Agee's cartoon illustrations and about halfway through it you will find yourself printing out the letters in your own name and seeing what you can make out of them.
I was pleased to discover I had read one of Agee's other books, "The Incredible Painting of Felix Clousseau" (or, "Literate Fan of Chinese Globulin Dixie Cups"). Agee has already written books on palindromes and oxymorons as well, so if you are interested in word play (or want to find things to put on your black/white boards to impress your students), this could be a handy little book. But all I can come up with for my name is "Barb Corn Weal Name" and that is pretty sad all things considered.
