⇱ Free Download Hardcover [ Between You & Me: Confessions of a Comma Queen - Kindle edition by Mary Norris. Reference Kindle eBooks @ Amazon.com. ] ↠ Kindle Ebook Author Mary Norris ∕ An Best Book of April 2015 Once upon a time, a couple or few decades ago, most American boys and girls in grade school were taught grammar and punctuation we learned, for example, that i came before e, except after c except sometimes, but never mind and that the verb to be was like an equal sign, which meant that you used the nominative case have I lost you yet on both sides of it It is I, in other words, is the correct, if dowdy, response to Whos there Some of us were even taught to diagram sentences some had parents who corrected us at the family dinner table I can still hear my father pressing the subjunctive upon me If I WERE, hed bellow, when I allowed as how thered be later curfews if I was in charge Whether they retained the lessons or not, most people probably don t wax romantic about the grammar lessons or teachers of yore. Which is why even those of you who dont have the soul of a second grade grammar teacher will love Between You and Me, the hilarious and delightful memoir by the longtime New Yorker copy editor, Mary Norris, who confides in the subtitle that she is a comma queen The above is not a full sentence, I know but I think I can get away with it by calling it my style Also, I put quotation marks around the word memoir, Mary I know youre wondering because I was trying to make the point that your book is an unusual take on the form, dealing as it does with thats and whiches as well as with your Ohio adolescence as a foot checker at the local pool Who knew grammar could be so much fun that silly marks of punctuation could be so wickedly anthropomorphized a question mark is like a lazy person , that dashes grow in families there are big dashes and little dashes and they can all live peaceably within one sentence , that there was once a serious movement to solve the he or she problem with the catchall heesh Clearly, Norris knows her book is plenty smart, but its its ones a contraction, ones a possessive joyful, generous style that makes it so winning This is a celebration of language that wont make anyone feel dumb but its also the perfect gift for the coworker you havent been able to tell that between is a preposition that never, ever, takes an object that includes the pronoun I Sara
