Roy Blount, Jr. is a true master at making us laugh and making us think about the vagaries and possibilities of language—both serious and comic. In books such as Alphabet Juice: The Energies, Gists, and Spirits of Letters, Words, and Combinations Thereof; Their Roots, Bones, Innards, Piths, Pips, and Secret Parts, Tinctures, Tonics, and Essences; With Examples of Their Usage Foul and Savory, and its sequel Alpha-Better Juice, he’s explored the twists and turns of our language. Come prepared to be edified and amused; no one uses words like Roy!
