eBook Í Confessions of a Comma Queen ê Mary Norris

Ng to maintain its celebrated high standards In Between You & Me she brings her vast experience with grammar and usage her good cheer and irreverence and her finely sharpened pencils to hel This is a delightful book if you can get used to the large print unless you are one of those who are helped by it This is not just a rule book about how and when to use a comma although it does that in the subtle and interesting way Norris I would have written ‘Miss Norris’ but she disliked being described as a lady tells of her early life and working as a milkman she dislikes that term too and moving to New York and being completely entranced by the word ‘synecdoche’ and her curiosity after reading Taggart’s book ‘Between You and I’ while waiting for a free parking lot It is such a joy to read this book because between you and me it reads like a biography than a grammar book She tells of the envy she had for her brother Dee who had privileges as a boy and how after years of wanting to be like him he decided to change his sex There is a chapter on ‘Between you and me’ of course and every chapter is full of humour – some of the humour starts with the chapter heading for instance ‘Who put the hyphen in Moby Dick?’ Fun to read anywhere – even while waiting for a parking lot
