Description
In the spring of 2009, the University of Chicago Press published The Subversive Copyeditor, a slim volume packed with wryly witty commonsense advice for editors and authors on how to successfully manage relationships with publishing colleagues and the many stresses of the job, written by our longtime colleague from Manuscript Editing Carol Fisher Saller. The book garnered much attention and acclaim and helped further Saller’s reputation as a leading voice in the profession. This thoroughly revised edition offers many refinements throughout and also adds two new chapters, one on the dangers of slavish allegiance to grammar and style rules and the other on how to stay current in the language and technology matters that are central to the work of evaluating or improving the writing of others. The author has also replaced the Further Reading list with a bibliographic essay, mainly of online resources. The revised content reflects today’s publishing landscape and practices while retaining the self-deprecating tone and sharp humor that helped make the first edition so popular.
