Literary Nonfiction. The most brilliant writers occasionally stumble with grammar and punctuation, and the rest of us can learn from their missteps. THE GOTHAM GRAMMARIAN is a book of rules and guidelines for anyone who believes that correctness and precision still matter. The book discusses the ninety-five errors that most often go undetected by stellar writers, as well as by editors, copy editors, and proofreaders.
