I laughed very often while reading The African Svelte: Ingenious Misspellings That Make Surprising Sense
by Daniel Menaker, and laughed again while viewing Roz Chast’s illustrations for the book. Linguistic errors give editors plenty of work to do, and a respite from that chore can be the delight found in the error that works. Any reader who loves words, especially the carefully chosen perfect ones, will find dozens of new darlings to love in this book.
(I love it)
