Details

This is the international bestseller - reissued and with a new introduction. A witty, entertaining, impassioned guide to perfect punctuation, for everyone who cares about precise writing. When social histories come to be written of the first decade of the 21st century, people will note a turning point in 2003 when declining standards of punctuation were reversed. Linguists will record Lynne Truss as the savior of the semi-colon and the avenging angel of the apostrophe. 'If Lynne Truss were Roman Catholic I'd nominate her for sainthood' - Frank McCourt. 'This book will stimulate and satisfy. It's worth its weight in gold' - Boyd Tonkin, "Independent". 'A witty, elegant and passionate book that should be on every writer's shelf' - "Observer". 'Lynne Truss deserves to be piled high with honours...' - John Humphrys. 'It can only be a matter of time before the new government seizes the chance to appoint her as minister for punctuation. The manifesto is already written' - "Guardian". 'She's a soul sister. She's one of us' - Richard Madeley, "Richard and Judy".
