In an intriguing and unquestionably obsessive history of Strunk & White’s The Elements of Style, a timeless advocacy for clear writing, Mark Garvey traces back to its originality and documents the engaging exchanges between Jack Case (editor) and E.B. White (writer) on the art and craft of writing the book. Garvey also recounts its wide success to the mass audience as well as its harsh rejections from the English departments. Reading Stylized is hard to resist rereading the little book.
