Confessions of a Comma Queen

May 21, 2015

Mary Norris has spent more than three decades in The New Yorker's copy editing department, maintaining the magazine’s high standards for grammar, punctuation, and style. In a new book, she shares her vast knowledge, good cheer, and sharp pencil with the rest of us. It’s partly a book of practical advice on language usage, and it also offers a peek inside the hallowed halls of one of the world’s most important publications. Norris joins us Thursday to share what she's learned as a self-proclaimed "comma queen."

Mary Norris began working for The New Yorker in 1978. Her new book is called Between You and Me: Confessions of a Comma Queen [Amazon|Indiebound]
