CONTEMPORARY QUOTATIONS

A thoroughly entertaining compendium of much that has been said, or written, by some 1300 people during the last fifteen years. The famous first and last words have been grouped categorically, and then alphabetically by the author, and cover a wide range of topics: government; politics; crime; the law; advertising; education; medicine; science; travel; religion; the family; etc., on to all the lively arts and the livelier media. Editor Simpson has a perfect eye for the memorable phrase or the unforgettable quip, and his book provides pick up reading you are unlikely to put down-- it has the automatic attraction of the peanut.
