Title: Eats, Shoots & Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation
Description: London, Profile Books. 2003, Reissue. (ISBN: 1-86197-612-7) Hardcover, 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall. 209 pages. This is a book for people who love punctuation and get upset about it. From the invention of the question mark in the time of Charlemagne to Sir Roger Casement "hanged on a comma"; from George Orwell shunning the semicolon to Peter Cook saying Nevil Shute's three dots made him feel all funny", this book makes a powerful case for the preservation of a system of printing conventions that is much too subtle to be mucked about with. As New/As New.
