Little House of Oxymorons: with commentaries

Front Cover
Hamilton Books, Apr 20, 2010 - Literary Criticism - 92 pages
0 Reviews
Eschewing old clunkers like 'military intelligence' and 'student-athlete,' this volume features well over 200 fresh and original oxymorons with commentaries-all with a satirical twist. As a satire, Little House of Oxymorons complements Steven Carter's The New Devil's Dictionary, a two-volume 'sequel' to Ambrose Bierce's notorious The Devil's Dictionary of a century ago. Cover image: Allison O'Donnell, Resist, 2008. Acrylic and graphite painting on rag board.
