2005/12/30 17:49:00 - Punctuate, punctuate, punctuate!
73. Truss, Lynn. Eats, Shoots & Leaves

I actually read this nearer the beginning of the year, and it now sits on my desk as a reference guide for confused questions. It is a combination historical and didactical work on Punctuation which rarely restrains itself from arguing why you should use punctuation as well as when. In short it's fun as well as interesting.

I haven't managed to get my hands on the copy MWNN bought early in the year. I've had to console myself with Zen and the Art of Writing by Ray Bradbury, which has nothing whatsoever to do with puntuation.

Every time I see a semi colon I think of Lynn Truss, not sure why those specifically but I do.

The didactic part is what makes it fun, too.

A notably irritating tract.
