Book Review: The Glamour of Grammar

The Glamour of Grammar, by Roy Peter Clark

Early in 2011, I picked up a book from my local Borders, after a quick double-take at the title, “The Glamour of Grammar”. After flipping through the first couple pages and discovering the source of the title, and the history of a magical connection between the words ‘glamour’ and ‘grammar’, I very quickly came to love Roy Peter Clark’s insight into the history and application of grammar, as well as his ability to show English as a far more complex creature than I had previously known it to be.

But wait, there’s more!
