From the cover: Miles Kington, who introduced it to the British reading public, has now produced the finest flowering of Franglais the worlds greatest literary writings, abridged to sensible lengths and translated into this economical and expressive language. In this book you have a choice of over forty masterpieces everything from the Book of Genesis to poems by Keats and de la Mare, from William Bard Shakespeares Two Henry Vs de Verona to Agatha Christies Mlle Marple. It makes no attempt to go anywhere near James Joyces Ulysses. It is, in short, the sort of book that the discerning reader has always been looking for it means that you can now throw out almost every other book you own, with the possible exception of James Joyces Ulysses, and entrust yourself entirely to this collection of masterpieces. At last literature can be fun, and Miles Kington can give up writing Franglais books.
