Synopsis:

A one-of-a-kind celebration of the 101 two-letter words allowed in Scrabble.

Rolling Stone has called singer-songwriter Stephin Merritt of the Magnetic Fields ?the Cole Porter of his generation?; O, The Oprah Magazine has hailed cartoonist Roz Chast as ?the wryest pen since Dorothy Parker?s.? Together they have crafted a wonderfully witty book that is sure to prove useful to Scrabble players and Words With Friends addicts?and to delight anyone in thrall to the weirder corners of the English language.

With the mordant wit and clever wordplay of Edward Gorey or Shel Silverstein, Stephin Merritt has written an original four-line rhyming poem for each of the 101 two-letter words included in The Official Scrabble Players Dictionary. Here are poems about familiar words (such as at, go, hi, no, and up) as well as obscure ones (such as aa, ka, oe, qi, xu). And every one of the 101 poems is accompanied by a full-color illustration by the incomparable cartoonist Roz Chast.

101 Two-Letter Words is perfect for any language lover or Scrabble player (it may even improve your score!).

101 color illustrations

About the Author: With the Magnetic Fields, Stephin Merritt has written, produced, and recorded ten albums, including 69 Love Songs, which was named one of the 500 best albums of all time by Rolling Stone. Merritt has performed as part of Lincoln Center?s ?American Songwriters? series and at BAM?s ?Next Wave of Song,? and he has composed the score for the Academy Award?nominated film Pieces of April and for Eban and Charley.

Roz Chast has been a regular contributor to The New Yorker since 1978. Her cartoons have been collected in What I Hate, Theories of Everything, and The Party After You Left. She also illustrated The Alphabet from A to Y, with Bonus Letter Z, the best-selling children?s book by Steve Martin. Her most recent book is Can?t We Talk About Something More Pleasant?, a memoir about her parents.
