About this product
- DescriptionEvery generation has its own signature brand of wit, from the Elizabethan wits like William Shakespeare to the Regency and Victorian wits. They're all well kwn for their biting barb, caustic commentary or rude riposte, but until w the wits of contemporary Britain have never been brought together. The Modern Wit champions the sense of humour of the modern age, taking contributions from politicians like Boris Johnson, comedians and interviewers such as John Stewart and Clive James, actors and presenters like Stephen Fry and Paul Merton to columnists and writers such as P. J. O'Rourke and Ben Elton. The Modern Wit brings all these fantastic wits together for the first time, proving that every generation has something to laugh about.
- Author BiographyShelley Klein's other collections include The Book of Senior Moments, Frankly My Dear: Quips and Quotes from Hollywood, The Most Evil Women in History, and The Wicked Wit of Charles Dickens.
