Language and magic. Where is the connection? Think about it this way: when we form letters to write words, we create something out of nothing, so that the still air or the empty space on a page fills with meaning, as if a wizard created a blizzard from a clear blue sky.
(pg. 15, The Glamour of Grammar by Roy Peter Clark)
I finally got to start this one, and I love the way Clark talks about language, and spelling and punctuation. It’s not dry rules; it’s exciting, liberating, fun. By the way, my giveaway for this one is still open. You can enter here if you’re in the US or Canada.
Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Play along. The rules are easy and I only cheated a little. Grab your current read, open to a random page, and give us two teaser sentences. Remember, no spoilers.
I received my copy from the publisher for review and the above is my honest opinion. I am an Amazon associate.
