Oxymoronica: Paradoxical Wit and Wisdom (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


A book for anyone who enjoys the funny, quirky and humorous side of language. Oxymoronica includes hundreds of paradoxical and contradictory observations by a wide range of writers, politicians, philosophers and public figures. As Mardy Grothe reveals in this book, human beings are often at their most profound when they are apparently talking nonsense. This seriously funny collection draws together a host of delightfully contradictory statements from leading writers and wits and shows how, in spite of their paradoxical nature, they convey arresting and amusing truths about art, love, and the human condition.
