Product description

About the Author

Writer and Editor Harry Oliver holds a fascination for the quirky stories that lie behind aspects of our everyday lives. His previous book March Hares and Monkeys' Uncles as a bestselling look at the origins of phrases, and for this new volume he has turned his attentions elsewhere to come up with an equally fascinating look at old wives' tales and superstitions. Author of two other books, he lives and works in London.
