Mary Norris: Between You & Me
Mary Norris has been working at The New Yorker’s copy department as long as I have lived (since 1978); therefore, she knows a thing or two about grammar and the English language. Her Between You & Me is a hilarious memoir filled with intriguing, meticulous details of punctuation, usage of obscenity, the No. 1 pencil, and pencil sharpener. It’s a laugh-and-learn read—definitely recommended.
