Want to know the word for the area on your back that you can't reach to scratch (acnestis)? Or the term for the smell of earth just after a rainstorm (petrichor)? With a chapter for each letter of the alphabet, this book introduces us to hundreds of words the author discovered that deserve to see the light of day again, and explains why.
