That pesky comma


This book is dedicated to my parents, Ayn Rand and God

quoted by Mary Norris in Between You & Me: Confessions of a Comma Queen (Text 2015),  a book to gladden the hearts of grammar nerds and language pedants – the Gerts of the world. Mary Norris worked as a copy editor at The New Yorker for 30 years.  And if you want to know more about pencils, erasers, pencil sharpeners, dressing up as a penis, and driving a milk  truck, this is the book for you.
