First published as The Cynic's Word Book in 1906, The Devil's Dictionary offers over 1000 wickedly clever definitions to the vocabulary of everyday life, and is what some would say, an appropriate guide to modern living for all free-thinking individuals.
Every page bursts with acerbic humor and delightfully cutting observations on society, as Beirce mocks his contemporaries with questions enduring ideals of capitalism, imperialism and convention.
Ambrose Bierce's The Devil's Dictionary is a classic that stands alongside the best work of satirists such as Twain, Mencken, and Thurber.
Beautifully published and designed by Roads Publishing (Ireland).
