How to Sound Cultured
'Damn, all my cheating secrets revealed. In book form' Stephen Fry
Which philosopher had the maddest hairstyle? Which novelist drank 50 cups of black coffee every day? What on earth did Simone de Beauvoir see in Jean-Paul Sartre?
How to Sound Cultured offers a wry and yet profoundly useful look inside the mirrored palaces of high culture. Covering such inscrutable characters as Heidegger, Montaigne, Kahlo and Levi-Strauss (apparently not just a designer of jeans), inscrutable polymaths Thomas W. Hodgkinson and Hubert van den Bergh the author of the acclaimed How to Sound Clever have done the hard work of sorting the cultural wheat from the chaff.
Read this book and you ll never again mistake Rimbaud for Rambo or Georg Lukacs for George Lucas, you ll know precisely when to drop Foucault s name into a conversation and how to pronounce Borgesian, and you ll learn many more essential pointers for the intellectual life."
