Great American Wit Robert E. Drennan & Heywood Hale Broun read online review & book description:

The perfect gift for the snarky literature fan in your life!
“Stop looking at the world through rose-colored bifocals.”
“His mind is so open, the wind whistles through it.”
“You can’t teach an old dogma new tricks.”
Ever wonder where these sayings came from? For decades, the dining room of New York’s legendary Algonquin Hotel was a hub of letters and humor. Cocktails swirled as writers, humorists, actors, and critics poked fun at culture, the arts, and one another. In this lively tribute, today’s readers will come to understand why Robert Benchley, George S. Kaufman, and Dorothy Parker represent the epitome of quips and comebacks—wit that still packs a punch decades later. Each chapter contains:
• A short biographical sketch • A photo of the great American wit • Handpicked collection of quotes and anecdotes

Packaged in a contemporary cover, this is the perfect gift or coffee table book. Discover the sarcasm, double entendres, insults, and jabs that earned these sharp minds the collective title of “the Vicious Circle.”
