About the Author

Lynne Truss is a writer and journalist who started out as a literary editor with a blue pencil and then got sidetracked. The author of three novels and numerous radio comedy dramas, she spent six years as the television critic of The Times of London, followed by four (rather peculiar) years as a sports columnist for the same newspaper. She won Columnist of the Year for her work for Women's Journal. Lynne Truss also hosted Cutting a Dash, a popular BBC Radio 4 series about punctuation. She now reviews books for the Sunday Times of London and is a familiar voice on BBC Radio 4. She lives in Brighton, England.

Reviews

"You don't need to be a grammar nerd to enjoy this one... Who knew grammar could be so much fun?" -Newsweek"Witty and instructive... Truss is an entertaining, well-read scold in a culture that could use more scolding." -USA Today"Truss is William Safire crossed with John Cleese's Basil Fawlty." -Entertainment Weekly"Witty, smart, passionate, it gives long-overdue attention to 'the traffic signals of language.'"--John Rechy, Los Angeles Times Book Review "Best Books of 2004: Nonfiction" "Truss's scholarship is impressive and never dry." -Edmund Morris, The New York Times"[Truss is] a reformer with the soul of a stand-up comedian." -Boston Globe" This book changed my life in small, perfect ways like learning how to make better coffee or fold an omelet. It's the perfect gift of anyone who cares about grammar and a gentle introduction for those who don't care enough." -Boston Sunday Globe"Lynne Truss makes [punctuation] a joy to contemplate." -Elle Magazine "A witty look at the amusing foibles of punctuation." -Reader's Digest"Lynne Truss has done the English-speaking world a huge service." -The Christian Science Monitor"Witty and playful." -Time Out New York
