In this collection of essays, Florence King confirms her position as one of the wittiest social critics now writing-and certainly the most uninhibited.

From college professors ("incapable of earning a living with either their minds or their hands") to the South ("if at first you don't secede, try, try, again") to the U.S. government ("the crude leading the crud"), few fools remain unskewered by the reigning Queen of Spleen
