About "Greek To Me: Adventures of the Comma Queen"
The Comma Queen returns with a buoyant book about language, love and the wine-dark sea. In her New York Times bestseller "Between You & Me," Mary Norris delighted readers with her irreverent tales of pencils and punctuation in The New Yorker’s celebrated copy department. In "Greek to Me," she delivers another wise and funny paean to the art of self-expression, this time filtered through her greatest passion: all things Greek.
