Beyond the simple joy of cussing, Dunn explores literary style, the challenges and opportunities of grammar, the history and usage of swearing, and, finally, how an arrangement of letters and words on a page can create a physical reaction in our bodies. The perfect gift for the writer, reader, language-lover, and sailor in your life.
