Overlook Celebrates WALKING ENGLISH with Author David Crystal
Friends of The Overlook Press celebrated the paperback release of David Crystal's Walking English last night, at a reception hosted by publisher Peter Mayer. Walking English is a thoroughly enjoyable read - a mesmerizing and entertaining narrative account of his encounters with the language and its speakers from all over the world. Woven from personal reflections, historical allusions, and observations of travelers, this fascinating journey through the language we use every day will have readers thinking twice about each word they speak.
