Product description

Review

"... irreverent neological talent, (...) Wyse's gift lies in his ability to recognize hitherto unnamed objects and experiences for which there ought to be pitchy expressions. We can think him for screbe ("the sound of an orchestra tuning up"), for librido (the sublimated sexual tension in a library) and for the surreality of woobris ("overconfident trees")." (TLS)
