Summary
Cecelia Watson charts the rise and fall of the semicolon, which for years was the trendiest punctuation mark in the world of letters. Taking us on a breezy journey through a range of examples--from Milton's manuscripts to Martin Luther King Jr.'s "Letters from Birmingham Jail" to Raymond Chandler's The Big Sleep--Watson reveals how traditional grammar rules make us less successful at communicating with each other than we'd think
