Mary Norris, author of Greek to Me: Adventures of the Comma Queen

GREEK TO ME is a charming account of Mary Norris’ lifelong love affair with words and her solo adventures in the land of olive trees and ouzo. Along the way, Norris explains how the alphabet originated in Greece, makes the case for Athena as a feminist icon, goes searching for the fabled Baths of Aphrodite, and reveals the surprising ways Greek helped form English.
