Mary Norris is a writer and editor who is originally from Cleveland, Ohio, and lives in New York City. She was educated at Rutgers University and at the University of Vermont. Her first book, the New York Times best-selling Between You and Me: Confessions of a Comma Queen (Norton, 2015), was about her day job at The New Yorker, where she worked for over thirty years as a copy editor. Her new book, Greek to Me: Adventures of the Comma Queen (Norton, 2019), is about what she did in her spare time: study Greek, travel in Greece, read the classics, and otherwise cultivate life as a philhellene.
