Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In demystifying the complex world of grammar, Tom Disch and Dave Morice have constructed a wonderful new entertainment stimulated by many of the rules of the English language. The engaging verbal and visual wit of the Disch/Morice duo amuses as it informs, appealing to both the grammatically challenged and the rare soul who delights in diagramming dense sentences. Disch's playful verses lead us to see anew rules long forgotten or never fully understood, while Morice's comic treatments flesh out the dry, chalky terrain of pronouns, tenses, infinitives, and prepositions.

A perfect gift for anyone needing introduction, or reintroduction, to the rules of the verbal road, and for those who enjoy the clever play of word and image.
