Grammar Noir

Mark Liebermann at Language Log has a great round-up of John McIntyre’s You Don’t Say, a noir grammar thriller in 4 parts.  Read ’em all.

Editing’s a mug’s game. The words strain and crack; sometimes they
break under the burden, the tension. They slip and slide and perish —
won’t stay still. You go out on a raid on the inarticulate, and not
everybody comes back.
