About this book
This is an American classic, and in its first paperback version, it is sure to receive a new wealth of fans. Bierce was a friend and rival of Mark Twain, best known for his insolent, entertaining and sometimes courageous columns. In 1913, he set off to Mexico and was never seen again. Will appeal to fans of "QI", and those with a thirst for anarchic trivia. Illustrations by Ralph Steadman.
A classic quick-witted dictionary.
