'By judicious updating and editing and by dint of its elegant design and printing, this latest edition retains as strong a place in its reference market niche as it ever did; long may that continue.' - Stuart James, Past Editor, Reference Reviews, and formerly University Librarian, University of Paisley, UK An idiosyncratic adventure, pulling you in and saying: "this is, in fact, not what you were looking for; but it's much more interesting." - Terry Pratchett Of all the dictionaries in the world [Brewer's] is the most like a treasure-hunt, where one phrase leads to another, and that to a third, and before you know what's happened, it's time for lunch. - Philip Pullman Brewer's head-words are so enticing and his definitions so eloquent that it's impossible to stop at one. An addiction may develop. - Carol Rumens, The Independent The essential companion to your dictionary and thesaurus - Writing MagazineReseña del editor:
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.
