The Corner

We Two Kings

Now get Florence King’s two acclaimed collections for the one low price of only $34.95 (that’s a big $20 savings off the regular price, and includes shipping and handling). For the curmudgeon who needs a bit of Grinch under the tree, get STET, Damnit! The Misanthrope’s Corner, 1991 to 2002. This is the complete, unabridged assembly (over 500 pages in a handsome hardcover) of all of her beloved “Misanthrope’s Corner” columns—you’ll find theses masterpieces still resound, reverberate, and dazzle. Her unorthodox and unexpected take on a sweeping array of subjects—politics, fads, court rulings, murderesses, scandals, recounts, you name it—remains crisp, fresh, insightful, intelligent, engaging, and always entertaining. The prose still snaps — and the terrible swift pen still slashes. 

The same goes for Deja Reviews: Florence King All Over Again, the handsome 360-page hardcover collection of each and every one of the glorious essays and unrivalled book reviews Miss King penned for National Review and The American Spectator up until her (now happily revoked!) retirement in 2002. Inside you’ll find classic essays such as “A Wasp Looks at Lizzie Borden” and “South Mouth: Why Liberals Hate Dixie”—plus 59 book reviews, the milieu where Miss King’s talents are on their most glorious display.

Order both books here.
