I recommend finding this beautiful illustrated version of this classic resource guide. Illustrations are by Maira Kalman, and they make this grammar bible a little artistic journey ever more enjoyable to read and marvel in between discussions of parenthetic expressions and dangling participles.
And yes, there is a Basset Hound on the cover, and if you know me…I loves me a hound. There’s one sleeping on my sofa back home while I’m in the office.

As a writer, I’m a little dopey about grammar. I can practice it, but I cannot explain it. I can write it, but am dolefully indifferent to passive voice, pronouns, quotations and coma usage. I manage, but I can always be better.
