Actually, the Comma Goes Here: A Practical Guide to Punctuation

BY LUCY CRIPPS

Every piece of punctuation, from the “stern, opinionated, and unswayable” period to the “raucous giggles of the winking semicolon,” gets its due diligence in this compact grammatical guide. It also includes a section on “the ‘not punctuation’ points,” including the @ symbol, the number sign, and the ampersand, as well as a handy chart comparing the punctuation preferences in AP, CMS, APA, MLA, and The Blue Book style guides.
