I'm tired of all this nonsense about beauty being only skin deep. That's deep enough. What do you want - an adorable pancreas? Jean Kerr, 'The Snake Has All the Lines' Humbug: Noun: Blind generosity to oneself; hawk-eyed clarity to others. I'm ambitious You're competitive She's pushy There is no private vice or public virtue left unscathed in Sue Webb's witty deconstruction of humbug. From sex and other bodily predicaments, to property porn, through career pretensions; few are left unscathed. Picking up where the 'Little Book of Insults' left off, 'The Little Book of Humbug' probes and dissects with great subtlety the pretenses which we hold dear to ourselves and through which we perceive the world. An ideal stocking filler for those who need their stockings filled and who can laugh and be laughed at. We're moving to the place in the country You're downsizing They can't afford to live in town
