And many handbooks offer reliable advice on the use of commas, semicolons, and so forth. But The New Oxford Guide to Writing does all three, so that no matter where you find yourself in the writing processfrom the daunting look of a blank page, to the rough draft that needs shaping, to the small but important questions of punctuationyou will find what you need in one handy volume.
