Diversion du Jour

Henry Raddick's hilarious mock-book-reviews on Amazon.com. A sample, "The Art of Flamenco" by D.E. Pohren:

I bought this book for my wife. Flamenco is the dust of the bull-ring, the flounce of the gypsy's skirt and the crazy clatter of castanets. Flamenco swaggers. Flamenco pleads. Flamenco is the beating heart of Andalusia. Flamenco is NOT a tanked-up Englishwoman embarrassing her husband in a hotel bar in Seville.
