This review is from: The Devil's Dictionary (Dover Thrift Editions) (Paperback)
This famous book, though not to everyone's tastes and certainly not PC, is a gem. Written over 100 years ago, it is a compilation of definitions which originally appeared in an American newspaper. Some are long-winded or now obscure, others will offend, but many are wonderfully funny. A cabbage, for example, is defined as' a familiar kitchen-garden vegetable about as large and as wise as a man's head'. This is a must buy for the broad-minded and at a ridiculously low price.
