Authors on the Air host Pam Stack welcomes back to the studio award-winning and best-selling novelist Simon Wood.
ABOUT TROUBLE & STRIFE: My new book is the anthology collection of crime stories inspired cockney rhyming slang. The book’s release is next month so I thought I’d clue you in on what to expect.
If you don’t know what cockney rhyming slang is, here’s a little bit of background. It’s a coded language where you create/use an expression that rhymes with the word you want to use then use the expression instead of the word. For example “butcher’s hook” is used to mean “look” and “plates of meat” is used to mean “feet” and “skyrocket” is used to mean “pocket” and so on… Invariably, the rhyming portion of the expression is dropped and the non rhyming element will take over.
