Weekend read: The five best punctuation marks in literature

Kathryn Schultz has put together a wonderfully absurd listicle for Vulture in which she argues with passion for the five best punctuation marks in literature. This is a great article in itself, but is made all the better for being one of the few punctuation-related articles on the internet that doesn’t tediously rehearse the merits of either the semicolon or the interrobang.
