The Horologicon by ‘The Inky Fool’

Journalist and blogger Mark Forsyth (‘The Inky Fool’) unleashes a cornucopia of unusual and forgotten words for familiar situations. The Horologicon is ‘a book of the strangest and most beautiful words in the English language arranged by the hour of the day’.

(Comedian and writer Hugh Dennis will be reading excerpts from the abridged version of the book, as part of BBC Radio 4’s Book of the Week which begins Monday 3 December.)
