American master of sardonic wit Ambrose Bierce defined the  epigram as a "short, sharp saying in prose or verse, frequently characterized by acidity or acerbity and sometimes by wisdom." This delightful dictionary puts multitudes of epigrams at your fingertips, providing the perfect phrases with which to show off your razor-sharp wit and verbal acrobatics. With contributions from everyone that matters (and many who otherwise haven't), this wonderful anthology is humorous, stimulating, and entertainingly edifying.
