The Limerick Homer
We have copies of the remarkable Limerick Homer available for sale. The Owl Oak Editors have reworked Homer's classic tales the Iliad and the Odyssey book by book into hilarious, ribald and frequently unintelligible limericks.
M. A. Schoor of the Frost Foundation comments:
"And so it goes. This epic absurdity fits right next to Slaughterhouse Five and Catch-22 on my bookshelf" -- M. A. Schorr
In these perilous times of economic uncertainty and grim reality checking, one needs a bit of levity. If you can only have one Limerick Homer, this is it!
