Description de l’éditeur

Join the author of "The Cynic's Dictionary" on a morbidly amusing tour of life's bleak underside. Gathered from the original "tirades" on Bayan's vintage Cynic's Sanctuary website, these eloquently witty essays will have you chuckling sympathetically at the ghastly fates that the gods inflict on innocent organisms. (It beats screaming in terror, doesn't it?)

Contents include "On Eating Our Fellow Creatures," "A Living Heck," "The Friendly Face of Evil," "Down with Natural Selection!," "In Heaven There Is No Pez," "A Breath of Used Air," "Thinking like a Cockroach," "When Does the Good Part Begin?" and 30 more meditations on the darker side of life and the lighter side of death.

Despite the bittersweet subject matter, "Extremely Dark Chocolates" is a tonic to read. Bayan's word-magic and cheerful cynicism create an instant bond with readers who yearn for humor with heart, style and substance.
