    DescriptionOffers a diverting plunge into the rich and varied slang surrounding sin and vice. Not just a dictionary, this entertaining reference gives extended word histories and humorous commentary on words, phrases, and their cultural and historical contexts. If chapters on alcohol, gambling, drugs, horse racing, sex, deadly sins, and crime put evil ideas in your head, read the final chapter on the wages of sin. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
