** The Grammarians by Cathleen Shine

The Grammarians are twins, obsessed with language and indulged in their love by their parents, and it’s a funny family comedy, featuring their psychiatric uncle as the prophet of doom. As they move into adulthood, they turn into grammatical enemies, one prescriptivist and one descriptivist, and the story bogs down into something that only a grammar-obsessed reader can love. In other words, enjoy the first half.
