Here is a refreshing tongue-in-cheek look at American idioms, presented in living caricature. American English Idioms, a whimsical collection of colloquialisms, is sure to delight you – and provide real insight into American idioms, customs, and humor.
Harry Collis has arranged common everyday idioms into nine lighthearted sections – including:
