THE ANGEL’S DICTIONARY is like a good joint: slim but potent. This hilariously irreverent “tour de farce” has received three major recognitions: Winner of the 2017 National Indie Excellence Award for Humor, Finalist in the Humor category of the 2018 International Book Awards and Finalist for Humor in the 2018 Best Book Awards.
In this knee-slapping dictionary for coming to terms with modern culture (or lack thereof), politics (so-called) and life (such as it is), bestselling author Sol Luckman reinvigorates satire to prove that—though we might not be able to change the world—we can at least have a good laugh at it.
Then again, maybe laughter can transform the world!
