Greek to Me: Adventures of the Comma Queen (Used Book)
â€śOne of the most satisfying accounts of a great passion that I have ever read.â€ť â€”VivianÂ Gornick,Â New York Times Book Review
Mary Norris, The New Yorkerâ€™s Comma Queen and best-selling author of Between You & Me, has had a lifelong love affair with words. In Greek to Me, she delivers a delightful paean to the art of self-expression through accounts of her solo adventures in the land of olive trees and ouzo. Along the way, Norris explains how the alphabet originated in Greece, makes the case for Athena as a feminist icon, and reveals the surprising ways in which Greek helped form English. Greek to Me is filled with Norrisâ€™s memorable encounters with Greek words, Greek gods, Greek wineâ€”and more than a few Greek men.
