Words Like Loaded Pistols

by- Sam Leith


Words Like Loaded Pistols (2012) is a reference to recognising and using rhetoric. These slates use historical, recent, and daily examples to demonstrate how rhetoric is present in everything we do, which is why it is such an important topic to investigate.

Sam Leith is the Spectator's literary editor and has written for the Wall Street Journal, Evening Standard, and Guardian, among other publications.
