I was born in Barcelona and have lived in the UK for many years now. I'm a writer, translator (English-Spanish and vice-versa) and I'm a medical doctor and worked in Forensic Psychiatry many years. I also have a BA and a PhD in American Literature and Film, and a Masters in Criminology. I've always loved books and apart from writing them I review them often. I write a bit of everything, check my books for more information and my about page for links. My blog is bilingual, English and Spanish.

    Finally, something really useful. Congratulations to John Dolan an thank you Olga for your review.

    1. Thanks, James! We can always rely on John Dolan to keep our brains ticking and to make us laugh. Have a great summer!

  2. Hi Olga, thanks for this review. This dictionary sounds like a jolly good laugh and we could all do with one at the moment.

    1. I totally agree, Robbie. Thanks for the comment and I hope your week if full of joy and laughter.

  3. Something amusing, I’m sure. Good luck to John with the book.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. Yes, John has a very dry sense of humour, and the book is easy to read in bits. I hope you have a good week.

    Of course I’m adding this book, lol. I too enjoy Dolan’s stories – thanks to you introducing his books to me. Love the concept! Lol xx

    1. Thanks, Debby. I’m sure you’ll have great fun with this one, and it has the advantage that it can be read in small doses, in between other books. Have a lovely week!

  5. Applesauce! Now that sounds like a blast, Olga. Best to John.
    I’ve been putting many hours into the Victorian slang dictionary I started a couple of years ago. Hopefully I’ll be finished with that soon. I love the idea of this sarcastic dictionary. Hugs on the wing.

    1. Thanks, Teagan. Yes, it is a blast. Good luck with your dictionary. I know you are working very hard on it, and you love language, especially historical usage, so I’m sure there will be many people interested and eagerly waiting for it.
      Have a great week!

  6. This sounds hilarious, Olga, and it would make a great gift. Toni x

    1. That is true, Toni. I recommend all of John’s books, but this one would be perfect as a gift for people with a sharp sense of humour. Enjoy your week!
