About this product
- DescriptionA virtual onslaught of acerbic, confrontational wordplay, this dictionary offers 1600 wickedly clever definitions to the vocabulary of everyday life. Little is sacred and few are safe, for Ambrose Bierce targets just about any pursuit that allows our failings and excesses to shine forth.
