Reviews of The Devil's Dictionary

Enjoyed

by Clifford P on Mar 1, 2012

Written by a man very much involved in life and much offended by the crudity found therein. Never at a loss to respond to what conflicted his morality we find him humorous or extremely thoughtful, and thought provoking in his responses. An easy read that will stay with you. More
