Best-selling New York Times author and renowned New Yorker copy editor—the Comma Queen herself—Mary Norris is again delighting readers with her wit, knowledge, and exploration of language in “Greek to Me; Adventures of the Comma Queen” (W.W. Norton; April 2, 2019, hardcover). In this new memoir, Norris relates her life-long love of Greece, her quest to learn the language and master the mythology, and her travels through the Greek Isles in search of herself.

“Greek to Me” is a brilliant, witty, and moving memoir. Norris’s love of words inspires her treks through Greece—both the language and the country. Join her on her journey in “Greek to Me” as she navigates from Alpha to Omega.

Mary Norris worked for the New Yorker as a copy editor and query proofreader for more than thirty years. Her first book, “Between You & Me: Confessions of a Comma Queen”, is a New York Times best-selling book about her years at the New Yorker. Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, Norris now lives in New York and Rockaway.
