Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
From the sarcastic to the suggestive, here are quotation marks as we love them best, doing horrible damage to the English language. Who wouldn't have second thoughts about ordering the hamburger on the diner's menu? Would it be best to skip the blowout sale at the department store? What hidden price must be paid for something marked free? Assembled by the creator of the wildly popular Blog of Unnecessary Quotation Marks, this book surveys the havoc wreaked by quotation marks on signs, menus, placards, and posters that leave reality upended by supposed facts. This smarty-pants guide is perfect for desperate grammarians, habitual air quoters, and anyone who appreciates a good laugh.
