Eats, Shoots and Leaves
`A punctuation repair kit. Passionate and witty...fresh and funny.' Independent`If Lynne Truss were Roman Catholic I'd nominate her for sainthood.' Frank McCourt`I laughed, I howled, and I immediately wanted to join the militant wing of the Apostrophe Society. This is great stuff: genuine, heartfelt and rousing.' Jenny Colgan`Enchanting, full of jokes and anecdotes and information. It makes you love punctuation; you want to conserve what is left and perhaps call for more of it.' Sunday Telegraph`It can only be a matter of time before the government seizes the chance to appoint [Truss] minister for punctuation. The manifesto is already written.' Guardian`Truss deserves to be piled high with honours.' John Humphrys, Sunday Times`Worth its weight in gold.' Independent
