This is one of the most hysterical books ever written. Because almost every word has a handy sentence, providing a contectual and "sometimes outrageous" example of usage, every page is a laugh-out-loud introduction to wry observations, put-downs and the power of language. This book is camp, but most of all, this book is history and shows how the the Gay Community employed wit as a humorous weapon against oppression and marginalization and as a means of self-expression and identity. Not many dictionaries give as much as this one.
