With Charity Toward None: A Fond Look At Misanthropy
Stitch for stitch, no American writer working today can match the witty scalpelwork of Florence King. In With Charity Toward None, the unreconstructed people-hater offers her pièce de résistance: a guided tour of the misanthropic life, and an inspirational handbook for Americans grown tired of "goo-goo humanitarianism and sensititivy that never sleeps." Along the way, she skewers Oprah guests, "lovable pseudocurmudgeons," and other pretenders on the tip of her poison-dipped pen. Her most acclaimed book yet, With Charity Toward None is a hydrochloric manifesto in the Queen of Spleen's crusade to "win one for the Sonofabitch."
