Reflections in a Jaundiced Eye

Florence King

In this collection of essays, Florence King confirms her position as one of the wittiest social critics now writing-and certainly the most uninhibited. Nothing escapes her withering gaze, from our greatest national institution (“Democrazy”), to the cult of Helpism (“Does Your Child Taste Salty?”), to the rules of historical romance writing (“Sex and the Saxon Churl”). If caring ‘n’ compassion are getting you down, open this book for a refreshing whiff of vitriol.
