Lynne Truss is a writer and journalist who started out as a literary editor with a blue pencil and then got sidetracked. The author of three novels and numerous radio comedy dramas, she spent six years as the television critic of The Times of London, followed by four (rather peculiar) years as a sports columnist for the same newspaper. She won Columnist of the Year for her work for Women’s Journal. Lynne Truss also hosted Cutting a Dash, a popular BBC Radio 4 series about punctuation. She now reviews books for the Sunday Times of London and is a familiar voice on BBC Radio 4.
2007 Eats Shoots and Leaves Box Calendarby Lynne Truss
In 2003, Lynne Truss followed up her popular BBC radio show "Cutting a Dash" with the punctuation sensation Eats, Shoots & Leaves. A former editor, Lynne Truss dares to say that it is time to look at our commas and semicolons and see them as the necessary things they are. The book hit number one on the bestseller lists, prompting such extraordinary headlines as "Grammar Book Tops Bestseller List." With more than 3 million hardcover copies sold worldwide to date, Lynne Truss has made "the history of punctuation a subject at once urgent, sexy, and hilarious" (John Walsh, The Independent).
Lynne Truss will be receiving renewed publicity with the release of her newest book: Talk to the Hand: The Utter Bloody Rudeness of the World Today, or Six Good Reasons to Stay Home and Bolt the Door. Features new illustrations.
