Product description

Review

"an editor and grammar columnist's funny but no-nonsense guide to better writing." --St. Petersburg Times

"Great writing starts with strong sentences. This is your guidebook to mastering the art."
--DONALD MAASS, literary agent and author of The Fire in Fiction

"June mixes sassy fun with practical advice. You'll laugh all the way to writing better."
--MIGNON FOGARTY, author of Grammar Girl's Quick and Dirty Tips for Better Writing

"It Was the Best of Sentences, It Was the Worst of Sentences is that incredibly rare breed of book: a guide to grammar and style that is simultaneously smart, engaging, and instructive. By tackling prose composition on a sentence-by-sentence level, June Casagrande has found a way to provide intensely practical advice for the novice writer--not to mention unexpected insights for the expert writer. It would make a welcome addition to any language lover's library."
--ELIZABETH LITTLE, author of Biting the Wax Tadpole
