Oh Excellent Air Bag


Product Description
Product Details


Edited with wit and imagination ... The press that has brought us this heavenly volume is the publishing wing of the Public Domain Review, an internet journal dedicated to releasing out of copyright material from the history of ideas. An Aladdin's cave of curiosities, it is for me the best thing on the web, and "Oh Excellent Air Bag!" has all the generosity, waywardness and rollicking spirit of the online project. How many other books furnish their reader with an "Index of Exclamations and Similes"? We are given three pages of references to the various expletives, epiphanies and images inspired by 121 years of inhalation, including Benjamin Blood's comparison of his elevated consciousness to "the bombastic effusions of our western generals on entering Canada". -- The Guardian. eye-opening compilation ... enthralling. -- The Paris Review.
