Synopsis:

A dictionary unlike any other, Dubious Definitions: A Dictionary of Misinterpretation is a clever, yet infuriatingly entertaining read.

It provides totally unreliable, inaccurate, tortured meanings to over 1,000 unfortunate words through the use of cryptic stupidity, abused double entendre, as well as the rigorous application of a finely honed level of ignorance.

Dubious Definitions is the essential reference work for all those who love words and are content only with the most authoritative and soundly based interpretations. It is guaranteed to intrigue, puzzle, annoy, amuse, infuriate and mislead in generous portions, while still providing a challenge to the conventional viewpoint and a welcome diversion for the lateral thinker.

Though often far-fetched, many of the meanings ring with a convincing aura of authenticity, which only adds to the satisfaction of untangling them. The quality of the author's research and his depth of learning are clearly evident throughout. The work is Dubious, at best!

About the Author:

A native of the United Kingdom, Brian Allen left school at the start of WWII, working in various jobs useful to the war effort until he was old enough to join the RAF. He flew as a wireless operator/air gunner in Bomber Command, and also undertook glider towing, parachute troop drops and supplying the French Resistance. He flew on D Day and at the Battle of Arnhem. After the war, the author ran his own market garden before moving to New Zealand in 1952, where he did farm work, was an accountant and a probation officer. Now retired, he is also the author of Brain Food and Other Tales.
