Why We Love This

The Portable Curmudgeon and the Portable Curmudgeon Redux by Jon Winokur. New York: New American Library, 1987 and 1992. Two volumes, 299 and 338 pages. The pair of books contains over 2,000 "outrageously irreverent" quotations, Winokur's equally outrageous interviews and anecdotes about famous curmudgeons such as Groucho Marx, Oscar Wilde, Calvin Trillin and many more. Fine copies in boards and dust jackets (one of which is price-clipped).

About Barbara Farnsworth

My bookstore, an old wooden building at the edge of a New England trout stream, houses thousands of used, rare and antiquarian books, with particular emphasis on Home and Garden subjects -- food and drink, gardening, interior design and architecture. I also carry titles on fashion, children's books and literature. Books really do furnish a room, beautifully!
