Stephin Merritt discusses and signs 101 Two Letter Words

Rolling Stone has called singer-songwriter Stephin Merritt of the Magnetic Fields the Cole Porter of his generation; O, The Oprah Magazine has hailed cartoonist Roz Chast as the wryest pen since Dorothy Parker s. Together they have crafted a wonderfully witty book that is sure to prove useful to Scrabble players and Words With Friends addicts and to delight anyone in thrall to the weirder corners of the English language.   With the mordant wit and clever wordplay of Edward Gorey or Shel Silverstein, Stephin Merritt has written an original four-line rhyming poem for each of the 101 two-letter words included in The Official Scrabble Players Dictionary. Here are poems about familiar words (such as at, go, hi, no, and up) as well as obscure ones (such as aa, ka, oe, qi, xu).  101 Two-Letter Words is perfect for any language lover or Scrabble player (it may even improve your score!)."
