RRP: £7.99 £6.39

A glorious exercise in cheeky punmanship, The Wonderful Wonder of Wonders sees Jonathan Swift in fine scatological form. Flying by the seat of his pants, the great author treats us to a condensed biography of his posterior, enlivened by some inspired wordplay.

Most famous for his celebrated masterpiece, Gulliver’s Travels, Swift was the foremost satirist of his day. Also including a selection of Swift’s other lesser-known works, and a very peculiar proposal to make money from public toilets, this volume will be a hilarious and illuminating read for any fans of Ireland’s most illustrious wit.
