Lovers' Wit

Lovers' Wit (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Sex, relationships, marriages and affairs have driven even the most level-headed individuals to sudden emotive outbursts of flushed-face anger, childlike excitement or hand-wringing despair. In calmer moments, these matters of the heart can prompt amusing or cynical witticisms, or bemused mutterings about the absurdity of it all. "Lovers' Wit" is a wonderful collection of quotations from the great lovers, the loved, the lost, and the lecherous. With classic one-liners from a rich variety of humorists, writers, actors, politicians and musicians, ranging from Woody Allen to Chekhov, Napoleon Bonaparte to Denis Leary, Rita Rudner to Mae West, this hilarious collection proves that when it comes to love, everybody has something to say.
