The Portable Curmudgeon
A nice little quote book, more for reading than reference. It is organized by subject, with lots of interviews with living curmudgeons and biographies of dead ones, and a one-page list of World Class Curmudgeons, including W. C. Fields, Groucho Marx, Dorothy Parker, Fran Lebowitz and Mike Royko. Highly recommended.
Return of the Portable Curmudgeon
This sequel to The Portable Curmudgeon is organized just like the first. There is a new and improved list of World Class Curmudgeons (3 pages this time). Lots of new quotes, organized by subject. The interviews and biographies include: Frank Zappa, Oscar Wilde, Dave Barry, and Carrie Fisher. There is no index, but that is just minor when you've spent a day of fun reading this book.
