Valuable reference book for Brit. Lit. readers
As an American who reads a great deal of Brit. Lit., I was often frustrated by my inability to figure out what some British slang expressions meant, especially when the context was not helpful. Since purchasing this book I have been able to decipher some of the most puzzling expressions. The index in back makes it user friendly. Best of all, the author's great sense of humor makes learning fun. I have already recommended it to colleagues and fellow Brit. Lit. lovers.

Knickers in a Twist Meets Expectations
Again, a gift for my husband. He loves British slang and keeps this near when we watch Brit Coms on TV. He also uses it to find new phrases to try out on me. Maybe we need slang dictionaries for every language . . . there might be more understanding in the world! :-)
