Description
This title contains over 8000 quotations from 1914 to 2001, arranged alphabetically by author with a short biography introducing each author and contextual remarks. It includes quotations from Margot Asquith to Monica Lewinski, George V to Boutros Boutros-Galli, and Jonathan Aitken to Frank Zappa. It illuminates individual remarks and sayings, clarifying who said what (did James Cagney ever really say You dirty rat?), why they said it and how they often wished they hadn't.
