`At last, a book that tells you exactly where to stick your apostrophe ... funny and useful, the perfect stocking filler.' David Marsh, GuardianApostrophes are a pain.
The rules about how to use them are complicated, and have evolved haphazardly. Originally written as advice by a copywriter for designers - wont to insert and remove apostrophes at will, for visual effect - this is a light-hearted pocket-sized guide to getting the things right. Simon Griffin lets off steam so that we don't have to, showing precisely why `Rhianna and Jennifer's photos were all over the internet' is quite different to `Rhianna's and Jennifer's photos' or what words apostrophes are replacing in sentences such as `He'd like you to buy him some cocaine', or `They've got it all on camera.'Elegantly produced, this is the perfect gift for any pedant, as well as an indispensable guide in all our moments of grammar-related frustration. *MAY BE SUPPLIED WITH EITHER A GREEN OR BLUE COVER*
