Publisher Comments:

The Definitive Source for Clear and Correct Writing

The Writer's Digest Grammar Desk Reference is the comprehensive resource on grammar and usage, a necessity for every writer's desk. It presents balanced instruction and real-world examples that will ensure professional and flawless work on every occasion.

There are some principles of usage I thought I'd never understand. This book has proven me wrong. Clear, illuminating, and comprehensive–this is a must-have resource for grammarians and laymen, alike.

–Fiona Maazel, managing editor of The Paris Review

Book News Annotation:

In a reference billed as "the definitive source for clear and correct writing," Lutz ( a short story writer) and Stevenson (U. of Florida) demystify the rules and nuances of English language grammar. With a focus on avoiding common errors, they review the parts of speech, punctuation, and usage with examples of faulty and defensible usage. Spiral-bound.
