Description
Why are people so crass, selfish, and inconsiderate? Is it anything to do with the way everything in our lives is organized to keep us at arm's length? Why do we have to put up with so much swearing, and whatever happened to public-spiritedness? Lynne Truss here gives us not a book about manners, nor about etiquette, but rather about rudeness itself. It is a joyous (and occasionally rude) rant against the everyday institutionalized rudeness we've all become accustomed to, exploring its sources and perhaps holding up a small mirror, politely. Though we know her best as the language maven who gave us her zero-tolerance treatise on punctuation, Eats, Shoots and Leaves, Truss has been cracking up British readers and listeners for years as a journalist and columnist for London's Times and other publications, and also as a presenter on BBC Radio 4. In this book she brings together some of her wittiest and most trenchant observations of modern life.
