Drinking, Smoking & Screwing made quite an impression, but it didn't tell the whole story. This deviously inspiring plunge mto the netherworld of grifters, fibbers, shysters, and scam artists finally settles the score. With over twenty-five page-turning excerpts from this century's wildest and most entertaining American writers -- including Dorothy Parker, Dashiell Hammett, Woody Allen, Russell Baker, Cynthia Heimel, Tobias Wolff, Mark Twain, and Groucho Marx -- Lying, Cheating & Stealing brings back the days when getting rich and getting even were more important than multitasking, working out, and recycling. This priceless collection will remind everyone how good it feels to get what you want -- in bed, in the bank, and just in the nick of time. Bad boys and girls rejoice! Once again revenge is sweet, cheaters prosper, and nice guys finish last.
