Humans and Other Animals


Humans and Other Animals
(2022, 208 pages, $19.95, 6 inches wide by 8.75 inches tall)

Anyone who loves humorous verse will know the name Ogden Nash. He wrote thousands of poems for The New Yorker, The Saturday Evening Post and other publications from 1930 to 1971. His memorable lines are legion – “candy is dandy, liquor is quicker,” “if called by a panther, don't anther.” – and his knack in writing lines that amuse even as they deliver a shock of recognition remains a marvel. This book brings together hundreds of his verses and matches them with witty illustrations by Brian Gable. As a bonus, it’s a two-sided book: Read the verses about humans by starting from the Humans... cover, and then flip the book over and read the verses about animals by starting from the ...And Other Animals cover. Printed on creamy Zephyr Antique Laid paper, Humans and Other Animals is a treat for anyone who likes clever humour and ingenious word play.

You can order this book through PayPal ($19.95 plus tax plus shipping).
