It Was the Best of Sentences, It Was the Worst of Sentences: A Writer's Guide to Crafting Killer Sentences

Book Overview
This innovative, humorous writing book from grammar-snobhating June Casagrande shows students and professionals alike how to craft bold, effective, reader-friendly sentences, one after another. This feisty guide goes beyond punctuation or grammatical correctness to focus on constructing effective, reader-serving sentences. Only by paying attention to writing's unit of meaning--the sentence--will writers be able to create memorable prose. The subject of improving one's writing at the sentence level is broad enough to appeal to a wide range of writers, yet specific enough to distinguish itself amid the many writing guides on the market. The author's spunky style and authoritative writing and grammar platform make her a writers' writer. With chapters on Conjunctions that Kill and Words Gone Wild, this little guide is the perfect gift for the cheeky wordsmith in your life.
