The Best of Archy and Mehitabel, Hardback

The Best of Archy and Mehitabel Hardback



A poet in a former life, Archy has been reincarnated as a cockroach who types by diving headfirst onto a typewriter (and is famously unable to operate the shift key to produce capital letters); his side-kick Mehitabel is an alley cat who claims to have once been Cleopatra.

Archy's poems irresistibly evoke 'Jazz Age New York' - as seen from the alley; funny, wise, tender and tough, they represent the very best of American humour.

Including George Herriman's whimsical illustrations and a classic introduction by novelist E.B.

White, this pocket poet selection will make a beautiful volume, perfectly sized for its tiny hero.
