Publisher's Synopsis

A fascinating, thematic exploration of clichés from as the actress said to the bishop to zero hour, explaining what they are and where they've come from. Julia Cresswell has taken her best-selling dictionary of clichés ('Sumptuous… A mine of information.' Guardian) back to the drawing board and has created a book, packed with famous (and infamous) quotations and memorable information, that will change the way you see English.
