Overview: Eats

Eats, Shoots and Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation is many things in one: a book on the correct usage of punctuation in the English language, an anecdotal visit into its long-forgotten history, and a lighthearted, albeit frantic call to preserve an intrinsic function of grammar that seems to be under threat. Written by Lynne Truss, former sportswriter and radio host for BBC Radio 4, the book, published in 2003, mixes humour with instruction and anecdotes with popular gags to put together a witty, often hilarious read, with a message that doesn't get lost along the way.

The title, derived from a joke about incorrect punctuation, attempts to drive home the essence of Truss' book. When a panda walks into a cafe, orders and eats a sandwich, only to finally draw out a gun, shocked, everyone asks why. The panda then tosses them a badly punctuated wildlife manual, asking them to figure it out. On the relevant page, they find their explanation. "Panda. Large black-and-white bear-like mammal, native to China. Eats, shoots and leaves." In 2004, the US edition of the book was a New York Times bestseller.

Lynn Truss is an English fiction and non-fiction writer and journalist, known previously for hosting the popular radio series on punctuation, 'Cutting a Dash'. Some of her other non-fiction works include Making the Cat Laugh and The Girl's Like Spaghetti: Why, You Can't Manage Without Apostrophes!
