Too many songs by Tom Lehrer( )

13 editions published between 1981 and 1999 in 3 languages and held by 667 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The subversive songs of Tom Lehrer, the sardonic piano-wielding fugitive from Harvard, have corrupted generations of Americans since he first began recording and performing in the 1950s. His uniquely depraved wit has been forced again on an unsuspecting public' via Tomfoolery, the stage revue based on his ever-trenchant observation of the American scene. This new songbook, with old favorites unavailable for years as well as never-published songs, is the most comprehensive ever assembled."--Provided by publisher
Cat o'nine tales and other stories by Jeffrey Archer( Book )

16 editions published between 2005 and 2015 in English and Portuguese and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While incarcerated for two years in five different prisons, Jeffrey Archer picked up several ideas for short stories. They range from a tale of The Man Who Robbed His Own Post Office to the story of a company chairman who tried to poison his wife while on a trip to St. Petersburg - both with unexpected consequences. In another, Maestro, an Italian restaurateur ends up in jail, unable to explain to the tax man how he can afford a yacht, a Ferrari and a home in Florence, while only declaring a profit of [actual symbol not reproducible]100,000 a year." "The Red King is a tale about a con man who discovers that an English Lord requires one more chess piece to complete a set that would be worth a fortune. In another tale of deception, The Commissioner, a Bombay con artist ends up in the morgue after he uses the police chief as balt in his latest scam. The Alibi reveals how a convict manages to remove an old enemy while he's locked up in jail, and then set up two prison officers as his alibi. In total contrast is the accountant, who, In Charity Begins at Home, realizes he has achieved nothing in his life and sets out to make a fortune before he retires." "And then there is Archer's favourite, which he came across after leaving prison. In the Eye of the Beholder, where a handsome premier division footballer falls in love with a twenty-stone woman ... who just happens to be the ninth richest woman in Italy."--BOOK JACKET
Ronald Searle in perspective by Ronald Searle( Book )

9 editions published between 1983 and 1987 in English and French and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this retrospective, dating from Searle's singular figurative sketches of the 1930s to the recent tightly jammed and highly ornamental tableaux which are identifiably his, will be found as bizarre a cast of beasts, birds, insects, and humans as has been assembled since Through the Looking Glass. Searle is essentially a satirical draftsman and fantasist. He can establish a contour, fill it with all manner of untiring squiggles, and create a scene that cunningly expresses a nightmarish vision. His paintings are ungainly yet handsome, mysterious yet clear, warm and sensuous, fearful, exuberant, and ironic. He belongs in every collection of pictorial humor

"World renowned cartoonist Ronald Searle has satirically but lovingly portrayed his feline friends in outlandish almost human entanglements. A remarkably hairy cat facing a dandruff problem, a vanity-stricken balding cat wearing an unsuitable wig, and a cat of a thousand disguises concealing itself as a rug are just some of the witty full-color illustrations that everyone, but cat lovers in particular, will find irresistible."--Amazon website
