Advanced maths has no practical use, and is understood by few. A symphony can be widely appreciated, but created only by a genius. Good writing, however, can be written (and read) by anyone if we give it the gift of our time. And a sentence might be as near as many of us will get to orchestrating beauty. Enter universally praised historian Professor Joe Moran. Using minimal technical terms, ‘First You Write a Sentence’ is his unpedantic explanation of how the most ordinary words can be turned into verbal constellations of extraordinary grace.
