Comma Queen invades Italy

Comma Queen invades Italy

In conversation with Mary Norris, acclaimed author of Between You & Me: Confessions of a Comma Queen.

Can a best selling book about English grammar by an American copy editor (subeditor) be translated into Italian? Basic differences between the languages suggest that it would be difficult. For instance, the title, with its reference to a frequent blunder in English (“I” instead of “me” in the phrase “between you and me”), is meaningless in Italian. And yet Regina della Virgola has a nice ring to it. The Comma Queen will discuss the response to her book in Europe and will tell us about her relationship with the Italian language.
