Review Text

An updated and expanded paperback edition of this classic and much-loved reference book, a treasury of memorable (and entertaining) quotations ancient and modern. The new edition has plenty of contemporary quotes, from songs as well as speeches - Bob Dylan and Tom Stoppard rub shoulders with Winston Churchill and George Bernard Shaw. It is wonderful for browsing and endearingly quirky; clearly a labour of love as well as scholarship. (Kirkus UK)show more
