Book – Eats, Shoots And Leaves

I once saw a very prominent sign above a row of urinals: Please Flash After Use. Okaaaay… do I see George Michael peeing nearby?

Learning to use the written word – English, that is – after so many years of roiling, say W. Somerset Maugham in his grave, can still be fun. Don’t think so? Just try Ms. Lynne Truss’ Eats, Shoots & Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation.

See a preview at Google Books. Sorry Michael, you are a great singer.
