How to Write (Bad) Copy

Thanks again to  Maureen at HPL who sent one of the funniest pieces I have read in a long time. It's a guide to writing flap copy from Daniel Menaker, the Editor of Grin and Tonic. I have decided to adapt Daniel's advice for my Dewey presentations so watch out while I talk about my "enthralling," "gritty," "original," "remarkable," "magical," "ground-breaking," "arresting," "dazzling," "heartbreaking," "compelling," "devastating," and "captivating" books.
