This book showcases the best and most humorous quotes from George R.R. Martin's favourite character Tyrion Lannister, the worldly, jaded, funny, highly intelligent, cynical, womanizing star of the books. A perfect stocking-filler for every fan of the books, and of HBO's award-winning television series.

'I only need half my wits to be a match for you'

Short and to the point. That's Tyrion. Here are the finest, funniest, rudest and wisest sayings of the miniature Machiavelli; the dwarf with a brain the size of a planet and a heart of (tarnished) gold ...'Sleep is good. Books are better'

Drawn from George R.R. Martin's bestselling A Song of Ice and Fire books, the basis for the HBO original series Game of Thrones. Illustrations are by artist and caricaturist Jonty Clark.

About the Author

George R.R. Martin has written six novels and many screenplays for television and feature films. He lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

        A must have for all Game of Thrones addicts.The size of the book ? reflects the stature of the character it portrays ? A great gift idea to help fill that Christmas stocking.So much more could have been included but that in itself would be yet another huge volume to add to the series !

            'Mr. Martin is a literary dervish, bursting with the wild vision of the very best tale tellers. And Tyrion is his grandest creation' New York Times 'I love Tyrion Lannister. He's a baller and a drinker but he's also dry, cynical, jaded. An atheist and an aesthete. I'm telling you about him because I think you will love him too, and I want to not be the only person in my social circle who has a poster of him on the wall in their kitchen' Caitlin Moran Praise for A Song of Ice and Fire: 'The sheer mind-boggling scope of this epic has sent other fantasy writers away shaking their heads ...Its ambition: to construct the Twelve Caesars of fantasy fiction, with characters so venomous they could eat the Borgias' Guardian
