"Depraved English is anything but depraved. Don't believe the title. It's a book on language you can read on subway, bus, and plane--though you have to be ready for surprised looks when you laugh out loud or give little yelps of joy. Your choller will wobble as you pick at your gound and, ever after, flat English will give you an attact of rectalgia. If someone is majoring in English, give him or her this book. Give it to your Randy grandma."--Frank McCourt, author of Angela's Ashes and 'Tis.
"Delicious and disgusting by turns, Depraved English is an invaluable and cleverly worked vade mecum for those millions of us who (a) are fascinated by sex and (b) enjoy insulting people. No intelligent home should be without it."--Simon Winchester, author of The Professor and the Madman
