Frank McCourt

In the foreword to Eats, Shoots & Leaves, Frank McCourt wrote:

“If Lynne Truss were Catholic I’d nominate her for sainthood.”

Then McCourt continues: “It’s a book about punctuation.  Punctuation, if you don’t mind!”

Smith & Wilhelm note the missing comma in McCourt’s first quote, and the fragment in the second.  Note there is also a colloquial exclamation point.

(Smith & Wilhelm 57)
