Oh, joy! Oh, bliss! For the first time since 1994, “Scorn” has been fully updated. This classic of literary invective, which has never gone out of print, now reflects both current and vintage retorts, ranging from politics to the arts, law, royalty and showbiz – and, of course, Sir Winston Churchill:
“Tell the Lord Privy Seal I am sealed in my privy, and can only deal with one shit at a time!” (WC, when interrupted on the toilet in his wartime bunker and told the Lord Privy Seal wished to see him.)
A warm return of a dear old friend. Four hundred pages of shamelessly pure delight.
