Overview

To Idi Amin I'm a Idiot and Other Palindromes by Fred Yannantuono


Poetry. As funny and entertaining read backward as it is read forward, TO IDI AMIN I'M A IDIOT AND OTHER PALINDROMES never fails to push the limit of thinking and unbridled curiosity. Fred Yannantuono's wit coupled with the insightful illustrations of Philippe Petit-Roulet create in this book a perfect storm of word play that you can hold in your hands, heart, and head to read and contemplate over and over.
