Odd Wit and Other Bits Proverbial Adages and Otherwise by Keith Stanley-Mallett

Odd Wit and Other Bits Proverbial Adages and Otherwise


Odd Wit and Other Bits Proverbial Adages and Otherwise by Keith Stanley-Mallett

This collection of proverbial expressions is composed of well-known adages handed down through the years, together with additional contributions from the author. Many of the maxims will be familiar to the reader and perhaps evoke memories of their younger days when the sayings were in common usage. Keith Stanley-Mallett has taken a different path with this, his latest book, even so, it makes a delightful and complementary companion to his previous works.
