The Snark Handbook: Insult Edition: Comebacks, Taunts, and Effronteries by Lawrence Dorfman is not a novel that can be reviewed for its content. That would be like trying to review a dictionary or the phonebook. What is interesting is to see where these snappy comments come from. In this work a reader will find commentary from Dorothy Parker, Groucho Marx, H. L. Mencken, Oscar Wilde, Robert Benchley, George Bernard Shaw, Jules Feiffer, Bill Hicks, Bill Maher, Phyllis Diller, Édith Piaf, W. C. Fields, Mark Twain, Voltaire, and Charles Bukowski to name a few. It sells for USD 1.99 and can be read for free on Kindle Unlimited. It might be a good idea to buy the book if you want to keep it as a handy reference before going out to a party where you know there will be plenty of Snark. If you read it for free through Kindle Unlimited, you will either have to return it sometime or keep the book forever in your TBR list of ten allowed borrows.
