Little House of Oxymorons: With Commentaries
By: Steven Carter (author)Paperback
1 - 2 weeks availability
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.
Steven Carter, the only two-time winner of Italy's coveted Nuove Lettere International Poetry and Literature Prize, served as a Senior Fulbright Fellow at two Polish universities. He is Emeritus Professor of English at California State University, Bakersfield.
