Praise for Lynne Truss and Eats, Shoots & Leaves:

Eats, Shoots & Leaves "makes correct usage so cool that you have to admire Ms. Truss."
—JANET MASLIN, THE NEW YORK TIMES

"Witty, smart, passionate."
LOS ANGELES TIMES BOOK REVIEW, BEST BOOKS OF 2004: NONFICTION

"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

"Lynne Truss has done the English-speaking world a huge service."
THE CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR

THE BOSTON SUNDAY GLOBE

"Lynne Truss makes [punctuation] a joy to contemplate."
ELLE

"If Lynne Truss were Roman Catholic I’d nominate her for sainthood."
—Frank McCourt, author of Angela’s Ashes

"Truss’s scholarship is impressive and never dry."
—EDMUND MORRIS, THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

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.

Book Description Harper Collins India, 2010. Softcover. Condition: New. First edition. Punctuations are crucial to achieving proper sentence structure and flow. In contemporary times, due to the widespread use of colloquial language, punctuation marks in sentences have been given lesser and lesser importance. Eats, Shoots & Leaves is a book that attempts to present this issue of dwindling punctuation usage in a concise and humorous format. Written by popular radio show host and author Lynne Truss, this book bemoans the lack of proper grammar in present writing at large. The author, in her book, dedicates chapters to various devices of punctuation in grammar. She dedicates entire chapters to apostrophes as well as commas, which are vital links in the chain of good punctuation. Chapters on semicolons, colons, exclamation marks, quotation marks, and question marks are provided as well in Eats, Shoots & Leaves. Lynne Truss discusses the history of punctuations with the help of interesting anecdotes that help in engaging the readers attention. She talks about the impairing effects of internet language use, in terms of how important rules for writing have come to be disregarded. Additionally, chapters on hyphens, ellipses, brackets, emoticons, and dashes have been included as in this intriguing book. The title of this book is based on syntactic ambiguity, which means that the meaning can be interpreted in more than one way. It has been taken from the context of a popular joke which features a mad panda in a restaurant. Eats, Shoots & Leaves was published in 2010 by Fourth Estate, and is available in the form of a paperback. Printed Pages: 244. Seller Inventory # 101223
