'If Lynne Truss were Roman Catholic I'd nominate her for sainthood.' Frank McCourt
The international bestseller, reissued and with a new introduction. A witty, entertaining, impassioned guide to perfect punctuation, for everyone who cares about precise writing. When social histories come to be written of the first decade of the 21st century, people will note a turning point in 2003 when declining standards of punctuation were reversed. Linguists will record Lynne Truss as the saviour of the semi-colon and the avenging angel of the apostrophe.

'Lynne Truss deserves to be piled high with honours.' John Humphrys
'It can only be a matter of time before the new government seizes the chance to appoint her as minister for punctuation. The manifesto is already written.' Guardian
'She's a soul sister. She's one of us.' Richard Madeley
