Snarkalicious April 21 2008
By Medievalia - Published on
Format: Paperback
An artful and humorous take on society, language and manners--as well as ample advice for a carefully considered jab to the social solar plexus. Author AC Kemp manages to pay homage to the best nineteenth-century etiquette guides while also giving an instructive and amusing tour of slang, insults, and the art of the backhanded compliment through the character of Lady Snark. Socialites, beware!

Snarkily, sarcastically, and wittily Nov. 30 2008
By Jeri - Published on
Format: Paperback
This very cute book would be a perfect stocking stuffer for someone who suffers from the dreaded Always Nice syndrome.

How to handle a pointed comment about well you look for your old, old age:

"Thank you....I wish I could say the same" (p 115).

You will learn how to handle the bimbo who is stealing your husband. How to deal with the bully in your classroom. And how to deal with the drunk in your Christmas party.

Smart AND funny June 30 2008
By WordLover - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a funny book of edginess and insults, wrapped around an insightful book about the way we use language. Highly recommended both for laughs and "aha" moments...
Perfectly Perfect Insults Oct. 23 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Production problems with my personally autographed copy, this book is a hoot.

Also, its negative critics confirm the reality that far too many do not appreciate the fact that writing comedy is hard to do as serious writing, if not even harder.

I love author Lady Arabella Snark.

In fact, I offered to marry her IN SPITE of her checkered past and suspected history of being a multiple incident black widow.

Thought this book would be more clever than it is. Not a great buy.
