Product Description

The spirited and scholarly #1 New York Times bestseller combines boisterous history with grammar how-to’s to turn how vital punctuation is in our world—period.

In Eats, Shoots & Leaves, former editor Lynne Truss, gravely fascinated by our current grammatical state, boldly defends proper punctuation. She proclaims, in her delightfully urbane, witty, and very English way, that it’s time to take a look at our commas and semicolons and see them as the wonderful and vital things they’re. The usage of examples from literature, history, neighborhood signage, and her own imagination, Truss shows how meaning is shaped by commas and apostrophes, and the hilarious consequences of punctuation gone awry.

Featuring a foreword by Frank McCourt, and interspersed with a full of life history of punctuation from the invention of the question mark within the time of Charlemagne to George Orwell shunning the semicolon, Eats, Shoots & Leaves makes a powerful case for the preservation of proper punctuation.
