Over 750 insults from the witty to the sarcastic, humorous to the rude. From the well known and famous to the dead and anonymous; from TV and newspapers to magazines long since folded. Many of these insults have not appeared in an anthology before.
Some early reviews that appear in this book:
The sort of book that once put down you can't pick up again.
Sir Maurice Bowra, English literary critic
You're going to like this.....not a lot.
Paul Daniels, magician
If books can be said to smell; this one smells of stale beds and damp sheets.
Eamon Dunphy, Millwall footballer
This has the style of being knocked up on a condemned typewriter in a garden shed in Wapping.
From the moment I picked up your book till the moment I put it down I was convulsed with laughter. Someday I intend to read it.
Reading isn't an occupation we like to encourage amongst police officers. We try to keep the paperwork down to a minimum.
Joe Orton, English dramatist
This novel is not to be tossed aside lightly but to be hurled with great force.
Its writers are still busy exhibiting their overblown egos and display as ever a talent for expressing commonplace notions with monumental verbosity.
G R Perkin
I do not claim to be a literary critic but I know dirt when I smell it and here it is in heaps - festering putrid heaps which smell to high heaven.
W Charles Pilley
No matter how thin you slice it, it’s still baloney
Alfred Emanuel Smith, American politician
We are not amused.
Like German opera. Too long and too loud.
