Reviews

 
This paperback edition of the revised and expanded Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase and Fable features hundreds of new entries on everything from blogs and designer babies to New York's mysterious sewer-dwelling alligators, as well as a selection of 'heritage entries' from a Victorian edition of Brewer's: see what the Victorians thought of things like enchanted castles, magic garters and poison detectors. The sheer scope of Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase and Fable, together with its delightful mix of scholarship and eccentricity, makes it a must for every 21st-century bookshelf. Brewer's. Take the scenic route to knowledge.
