Between You & Me

Between You & MeIf you love language this is the book for you. Mary Norris, copy editor for The New Yorker, talks about her life with words. It is an intriguing read, through the origins  of many phrases and how we use them. She talks about a fellow editor who kept a comma shaker at her desk and spends considerable time discussing the various solutions for the gender neutral pronouns. Her scope is wide and her angle is humorous.

Check our her entertaining blog, the Comma Queen.
