Praise for Henry Hitchings Dr Johnsons Dictionary:A goldmine of pleasures ... Hitchings has an infectious relish for words -- Sunday Times Henry Hitchings book ... is so good, so apposite, so chewy and edible, that I felt as if I were rereading it on my first pass -- Will Self, New Statesman 'Full of elegance and nail-on-the-head wit' -- Sunday Telegraph This is a delightful book about an extraordinary man.
