Reviews

"Punderful!" -Ben Schott, author of "Schott's Original Miscellany" "Anyone with an interest in language is going to find this book fascinating." -David Crystal, author of "How Language Works" "With his compelling narrative style, Pollack unearths hard evidence that the noble pun is much more than a literary step-child or linguistic anomaly. And as a practitioner of the art and artifice of wordplay himself, John naturally dedicates a bit of spice to peppering and assaulting us with a few subtle zingers of his zone." -Gary Hallock, producer of the O.Henry Pun-Off World Championships "In "The Pun Also Rises," John Pollack stirs the brain and tickles the funny bone with rewording insights into why the pun is dramatically rising in our culture, and illuminates with dazzling whiz and witdom how the pun has made us who we are today." -Richard Lederer, International Punster of the Year and author of "Get Thee to a Punnery"
