Between you & me by Mary Norris

between-you-and-meConfessions of a comma queen, sounds right up my alley, and I did enjoy a lot of this book.

The parts about her early life, and career at the New Yorker were fascinating, and there was some of the smug superiority I was expecting from a grammar queen, but I had to skim the actual grammar lessons, as terribly dull.
