Description - My Gonads Roar by Richard Napier

Anagrams have been around for thousands of years. Since Adam and Eve first realised that repents is an anagram of serpent people have been fascinated by the little ironies that occur when you play with the order of a word's letters. Pythagoras and Plato were both said to have been big anagram fans. Louis XIII once appointed a Royal Anagrammatist to entertain his court. In My Gonads Roar anarchic anagrammatist Richard Napier takes on the worlds of sport, music, celebrity and politics with devastating results, demonstrating just how anagrams reveal the truth about everyone. Is the new Arctic Monkeys album really going to be called Sticky Romance? Is there an Oscar for Meg Ryan for her role in the Nazi blockbuster, Germany? And really, was Britney Spears the best PR in years? Welcome to the world of anagrams, where hidden truths and secrets emerge on each and every page.
