About the Author:

Willard R. Espy was one of the most successful word-players and punsters of our time. After careers in reporting, promotions, and public relations, Espy finally committed to his word obsession in the late '60s, with a column in the British humor magazine Punch. The Game of Words was the first of more than a dozen delightful books on words, including the bestselling An Almanac of Words at Play. In 1999, at the time of his death at 88, the New York Times remembered him as, "An inveterate punster who collected clerihews, dabbled in double dactyls, limned lipograms, mixed macaronics and exulted in anagrams, homonyms, oxymorons, palindromes and spoonerisms... It wasn't so much that he has a way with words as that words had their way with him, or as he once put it, 'Words choose their lovers arbitrarily.'"
