Synopsis

The go-to guide to 21st century English from the grammar guru himself, Gyles Brandreth



'Brandreth excels . . . in all his linguistic joie de vivre' Guardian



Don't know if it's, like, okay to say 'like'?

Are your apostrophe's in the wrong place?

Want to make fewer not less grammatical mistakes?



Then do not despair, Have You Eaten Grandma? is the definitive (and hilarious) guide to punctuation, spelling, and good English for the twenty-first century.



Self-confessed grammar guru Gyles Brandreth pokes fun at the linguistic foibles of our time, tells us where we've been going wrong (and how to put it right), and reveals his tips and tricks to make every one of us better, more confident users (not abusers) of the English language. End of.



Is 'End of' alright? Wait, is 'alright' all right?



You'll find out right here . . .



This hilarious companion to 21st century language is perfect for anyone pedantic about punctuation or scrupulous about spelling.



'A laugh-a-lot, spanning everything . . . great book, I'm loving this' Chris Evans, BBC Radio 2
