Following in the tradition of "The Specialist" and "Temples of Convenience & Chambers of Delight", "Pees and Queues" is a delightful book about the lore of the loo. While international, "Pees and Queues" is primarily a view from a South African loo which includes facts, figures, news items, book extracts and anecdotes about conveniences and inconveniences, long-drops and P.K.s, chamber pots and bidets and a whole range of usage and customs.
Featured in this guide: a chronicle of comfort stations, ancient and modern; dramatic events starring Ladies and Gents; loo-styles of the rich and famous; hilarious contributions from well-known writers; literary gems and nostalgic privy memories.
