Elements of Style, the Pulitzer Prize—winning playwright Wendy Wasserstein’s first novel, is a scathing comedy about New York's high society facing the post—9/11 world. Francesca Weissman, an Upper East Side pediatrician rated number one by Manhattan magazine, floats on the fringes of the upper strata of privilege and aspiration. Through her bemused eyes we meet the thoroughbred socialite Samantha Acton; relentless social climber Judy Tremont; Barry Santorini, an Oscar-winning moviemaker accustomed to having his way; his supermarket heiress wife, Clarice; and more, tossed together in a frothy stew of outrageous conspicuous consumption and adulterous affairs that play out on Page Six. But when Wasserstein’s madcap tour of the social lives and mores of twenty-first-century Manhattan veers into tragedy, we finally see the true cost of her characters’ choices, and the beating heart of this dazzling novel. From the Trade Paperback edition.

This new and updated (2017) Classic Edition contains the original version of “The Elements of Style” by William Strunk Jr. as well as new content including editor’s notes flagging grammar rules now considered out-of-date, and a study guide. Generations of writers and college students have learned the basics of grammar from this short book. It was rated “one of the 100 most influential books written in English” by Time in 2011, and iconic author Stephen King recommended it as a grammar handbook that all aspiring writers should read. Strunk’s grammar classic, written a century ago, is a nostalgic link to the Art Deco era and the Roaring Twenties. Many of the grammar rules listed in the book are still relevant today; but, one by one, these rules are becoming obsolete. This Classic Edition commemorates the 100-year anniversary of Prof. Strunk’s book and presents his original version, but this new version offers these bonus features for present-day readers: 1. Editor’s Notes throughout the book alert readers to obsolete grammar rules and offer up-to-date advice on modern writing practices. 2. Grammar examples are illustrated with “right” and “wrong” icons, allowing readers to easily tell correct examples from errors at a glance. 3. A Study Guide has been added at the back of the book. 4. The paperback version provides blank, lined pages at the back of the book for convenient note taking. 5. The e-book version has been restyled for improved display on the latest e-book readers; and the paperback edition has been restyled and reformatted for a more modern, appealing look. If you are looking for a quick refresher to improve your grammar and style, or if you are taking a college course and “Elements of Style” is on your required reading list, this Classic Edition will give you the best of both worlds: a version that remains true to Strunk’s original book, plus modern touches which make this grammar book truly useful and up-to-date. Thank you for purchasing “Elements of Style: Classic Edition” and enjoy your read!
