Hilarious! Deeply cynical, and spot on-target. Fresh-faced newbies might want to avoid this satire -- it will strip them of any delusions they might hold regarding the true nature of the publishing game. On the other hand, this "Dictionary" will shave years off a new writer's learning curve, turning newbies into the kind of seasoned veterans who will nod sagely at the Devil's definitions -- even while laughing their heads off. I'm reminded of Maurice Sendak, author of the famed children's book WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE, who was recently quoted as saying: "It's [writing's] a waste of time. Publishing is vulgar and cheap, and they [writers] won't make a living." We all know it, and yet we do it anyway. THE LITERARY DEVIL'S DICTIONARY helps put our insanity into perspective. Highly recommended.
