Once a girl gets past the age of eight, she knows her deadliest weapon is her tongue. Women's Wicked Wit is a sumptuous selection of 2,000 of women's most acerbic comments on life, chock-full of quotations from Maria Callas, Cher, Hillary Clinton, Marlene Dietrich, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Fran Lebowitz, Sophia Loren, Madonna, Dolly Parton, Miss Piggy, Joan Rivers, Rita Rudner, Mae West, Oprah Winfrey, Virginia Woolf, and many more. Nothing and no one escapes these women's glare: women on women, women on men and other animals, and a huge range of other subjects. The whole proves that when it comes to cutting remarks, the female of the species is indeed deadlier than the male.
