Mary Norris has spent more than three decades in The New Yorker's copy department, maintaining its celebrated high standards. Now she brings her vast experience, good cheer, and finely sharpened pencils to help the rest of us in a boisterous language book as full of life as it is of practical advice. Between You & Me features Norris's laugh-out-loud descriptions of some of the most common and vexing problems in spelling, punctuation, and usage'comma faults, danglers, "who" vs. "whom," "that" vs. "which," compound words, gender-neutral language- and her clear explanations of how to handle them.

I saw the title of this book and I was hooked - ya-ay, she said "Between you and Me," not "Between and I!" That was just the beginning.My love affair with Mary Norris's book continued as I read along. You don't have to be a Grammar maniac like me to appreciate this book. It is illuminating yet funny. Also, there is so much information - like the Pencil Sharpener Museum for example. I may be exaggerating a little if I say it reads like a thriller but I did read it in one sitting!
