The Cat's Pyjamas : The Penguin Book of Cliches, Paperback

The Cat's Pyjamas : The Penguin Book of Cliches Paperback



This is a fascinating, thematic exploration of cliches from as the actress said to the bishop to zero hour, explaining what they are and where they've come from.

Julia Cresswell has taken her best-selling dictionary of cliches ('Sumptuous...A mine of information.' - "Guardian") back to the drawing board and has created a book, packed with famous (and infamous) quotations and memorable information, that will change the way you see English.
