This is a delightful book, written by the author of The Deluxe Transitive Vampire, on the uses of English words which look and/or sound familiar, but which may or may not have separate meanings. She cleverly gives examples of proper usage by using the inhabitants that haunt the Schloss, both human and animal (I think) . A wonderful story is thereby woven throughout this volume. The first section is called Couplings and Confusions/Finesse of Usage. The second section expands on some of these confusing words, and adds many to the fray, and is titled A Cave Canem Companion Lexicon. Includes index. ; 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall
