8pm, 14 November, 2014 – David Marsh comes to Brendon Books with his book, For Who the Bell Tolls – a lighthearted leason in grammar. Tickets £6.50
This is a book that explains the grammar that people really need to know, such as the fact that an apostrophe
is the difference between a company that knows its s*** and a company that knows it’s s***, or the importance of
capital letters to avoid ambiguity in such sentences as “I helped my Uncle Jack off his horse.” David Marsh’s lifelong mission has been to create order out of chaos.
For four decades, he has worked for newspapers, from the Sun to the Financial Times, from local weeklies that
sold a few thousand copies to the Guardian, with its global readership of nine million, turning the sow’s ear of rough-and-ready reportage into a passable imitation of a silk purse.
