Now in a handsome, hilariously illustrated new edition: The stickler-tickling punctuation polemic that has sold more than 1.6 million copies in North America (over 3 million world-wide) is even more fun with the whimsical art of acclaimed New Yorker cartoonist Pat Byrnes.
The runaway bestseller that has everyone minding their p’s and q’s (and their commas and semicolons), Eats, Shoots & Leaves has delighted audiences around the world and elevated Lynne Truss to superstickler status among those in the know. Language lovers everywhere will cheer the arrival of this new edition, beautifully packaged in a larger format with a red cloth-over-board cover and containing more than fifty vivid, full-colour drawings. Created by renowned cartoonist Pat Byrnes, each illustration brings to life a different punctuation pitfall in a wickedly playful style that matches Truss’s trademark wit. Eats, Shoots & Leaves Illustrated Edition is also accompanied by a colourful foreword by wordsmith extraordinaire Frank McCourt.
Pat Byrnes has been a regular contributor to The New Yorker since 1998, and his cartoons have appeared in numerous other publications. He is the author of What Would Satan Do?
