At its best, rudeness can be an art form, and the Cassell Dictionary of Insulting Quotations is a glorious celebration of the polished outpourings of its most successful practitioners. Luckless victims range from famous literary figures to politicians to kings and queens to actors, musicians and artists and there are also devastating side-sweeps at more general targets for invective, such as businessmen, newspapers and the countryside.
Entertaining, funny and rude, this collection delves deeply and viciously into the uncharitable side of human nature.
