A Big, Systematic Moan

by aparajito on Dec 13, 2007

Lynne Truss does not follow-up her hugely entertaining bestseller ?Eats, Shoots and Leaves? with another book on language and grammar; instead, she writes ? wait, what exactly does she write? This is not a handbook to good manners, and nor is it a traditional etiquette book ? actually, her own description of it is as follows: ?About Rudeness. Big Rant. Short. No discernible value.? Unfortunately, she is about right on most counts. But, fortunately, being a book by Lynne Truss, it?s a very easy and entertaining read, if only a little ? how shall I put this ? lacking in substance, the impressive bibliography notwithstanding. It feels like a charming and rambling after-dinner conversation, and, at least, for the moment, provides an outlet for all our frustration and rage at the inconsiderate rudeness all around us. And to that I say cheers!
