Oxford Dictionary of Humorous Quotations
The Oxford Dictionary of Humorous Quotations gathers more than 5,000 quotations in a rollicking collection drawn from an international cast of humorists and pundits, ranging from Shakespeare, Jane Austen, and Oscar Wilde to Groucho Marx, Monty Python, and Russell Brand. Arranging these quotes under more than 200 headings, from Acting to Youth, the book offers the sharpest, the wittiest, the wryest in quips, put-downs, and one-liners. The new edition is packed with even more quotes, and covers more subjects than ever before, from Weddings to the Supernatural, Australia to Headlines. The Oxford Dictionary of Humorous Quotations also includes an index of authors, so you can track your favorite humorist throughout the book, and an index of keywords.
With quotations courtesy of comedians and playwrights, novelists and producers, cartoonists and moguls, and displaying all shades of humor from dry to sly and subtle to wacky, the Oxford Dictionary of Humorous Quotations will be the perfect resource for public speakers, writers, and anyone else who enjoys a sparkling line, an ingenious pun, or a wickedly clever riposte.
