Choose your favorite, they re all here: Pride, Sloth, Gluttony, Lust, Envy, Anger, and Covetousness. Character sketches of each sin commissioned just for this volume bring the Seven Deadlies imaginatively to life. Fun to dip into anywhere, The Seven Deadly Sins is cynical, irreverent, thought-provoking, but always delightful to savor and read aloud, in the tradition of The Portable Curmudgeon. It contains more than 1500 barbs, quips, anecdotes, and other brief quotations by authors from around the world and from throughout the centuries all commenting on our inescapable familiarity with those seven naughty transgressions: Sloth: The only reason I would take up jogging is to hear heavy breathing again.
