Be in the best of company with the whiplash wits and sardonic savants brought together in The Portable Curmudgeon. From Aristotle to Frank Zappa, from Tallulah Bankhead to Oscar Wilde, from Woody Allen to Leo Tolstoy, the quotations on these pages run like rapiers through the entire alphabet of annoynaces. In addition to this wealth of wickedly barbed wit and wisdom, there are full-length profiles of and interviews with the towering world-class curmudgeons of past and present. Ideal for browsing, conveniently arranged A to Z for instant reference to the pet peeve of your choice. This book is not written from a Christian or a religious perspective. A few of the anecdotes are a little "racy."
