Mardy Grothe

Viva La Repartee

Clever Comebacks and Witty Retorts from History's Greatest Wits and Wordsworths

€ 18.95

From the author of "Oxymoronica" comes consolation for anyone who's ever said, "I wish I'd said that!" in this collection of history's cleverest comebacks, wittiest retorts, and other truly great replies. Everyone knows the sensation of utter regret that occurs once you've hung up the phone or said your goodbyes, and that perfect turn of phrase or witty remark comes to your mind with absolute clarity much too late. "Viva La Repartee" pays humble homage to those brilliant and rare responses throughout history that were expressed at the perfect moment and delivered with an aplomb that will have you pumping your fist with sweet satisfaction. From politicians and authors to entertainers and philosophers, Mardy Grothe has assembled the ultimate collection of comebacks, retorts, rejoinders, and banter from some of history's greatest word-smiths, including Oscar Wilde, Woody Allen, Dorothy Parker, Abraham Lincoln, Winston Churchill, Dolly Parton, Albert Einstein, and much more. As entertaining as it is intellectually nourishing, "Viva La Repartee" is sure to arrest the attention of language lovers everywhere.
