It's an addiction.

After giving away a copy of Parliament of Whores yesterday, I wound up dragging my own copy down from the attic and re-reading it for what must be at least the sixth time. Despite having vast swatches of it memorized, it's still laugh-out-loud funny. Every bon mot to ever spill from my fingertips is due to reading lots and lots of P.J. O'Rourke and Florence King.

Yep, two good 'uns. What's your favorite King book, Tam? Mine is With Charity Toward None: A Fond Look At Misanthropy.

I once spent an interesting afternoon trying to explain A Parliament of Whores to a Korean soldier. Fortunately, his English was better than my Korean.

My favorite Florence King?

Wow, that's a toughie...

The thing I've probably reread the most is When Sisterhood Was In Flower simply because it's sidesplittingly hilarious.
