The "Snark" (a contraction of snide remark, in case you were in a state of Carrollian confusion like us) series of handbooks by Lawrence Dorfman are a delightful collection of the bon mots of the great and not-so-great - the pithy and the profane, dirty and dignified, rude and rib-ticklingly ribald stuff that makes you think "I wish I'd said that." This is the third in the series, where - inevitably - we turn to the subject of sex, probably the subject of more quotable quips than any other. Ever since Adam said to Eve "Stand back love, I don't know how big this thing is going to get" sex has been the all-consuming endeavour for all strata of human society. Arranged (very loosely) into thematic chapters, Germaine Greer opines "Oral sex is like being attacked by a giant snail" and Henny Youngman poses the question "Why are Jewish divorces so expensive? Because they're worth it." And as well as these hundreds of (mostly) attributed offerings, an added bonus is the constant stream of unattributed ones running across the bottom of every page - "I have standards. They just happen to be lower than everyone else's", "Eternity: the length of time between when you come and she leaves", "Oral sex - a taste of things to come" and "Her legs are without equal - they know no parallel." 182pp linen effect softback with Victorian b/w pen and ink illus.
