Description: The antidote to Eats, Shoots and Leavesan uproarious and very American language book for those who are tired of getting pulled over by the grammar police What do suicidal pandas, doped-up rock stars, and a naked Pamela Anderson have in common? Theyre all a heck of a lot more interesting than reading about predicate nominatives and hyphens. June Casagrande knows this and has invented a whole new twist on the grammar book. Grammar Snobs Are Great Big Meaniesis a laugh-out-loud funny collection of anecdotes and essays on grammar and punctuation, as well as hilarious critiques of the self-appointed language experts. Chapters include: Im Writing This While NakedThe Oh-So Steamy Predicate Nominative SemicolonoscopyColons, Semicolons, Dashes, and Other Probing Annoyances Ill Take I Feel Like a Moron for $200, AlexWhen to Put Punctuation Inside Quotation Marks Snobbery Up with Which You Should Not Put UpPrepositions Is That a Dangler in Your Memo or Are You Just Glad to See Me? HyphensLife-Sucking, Mom-and-Apple-Pie-Hating, Mime-Loving, Nerd- Fight-Inciting Daggers of the Damned Casagrande delivers practical and fun language lessons not found anywhere else, demystifying the subject and taking it back from the snobs. In short, its a grammar book people will actually want to readjust for the fun of it.
