By Norris, Mary
Mary Norris has spent more than three decades guarding The New Yorker s grand traditions of grammar and usage, and she has been hailed by John McPhee as the verbal diagnostician I would turn to for a first, second, or third opinion on just about anything. Now she brings her vast ...experience and sharpened pencil to help the rest of us in a charming language book as full of life as it is of practical advice. Between You & Me features Norris s laugh-out-loud exhortations about exclamation marks and emoticons, comma faults and curse words; her memorable exchanges about usage with writers such as Ian Frazier, Pauline Kael, Philip Roth, and George Saunders; and her loving meditations on the most important tools of the trade. Readers and writers will find in Norris neither a scold nor a softie but a wise new friend in love with language.Read more
