Cormac McCarthy Is Correct

Quantum Man, a biography of physicist Richard Feynman written by Lawrence M. Krauss, was first published in hardcover in March 2011. It comes out next month in paperback, and as the back of the book makes clear, it now has edits from [Cormac] McCarthy himself. According to Krauss, McCarthy liked the book so much he volunteered to work on it. In addition to reworking certain passages, McCarthy also made Krauss “promise he could excise all exclamation points and semicolons, both of which he said have no place in literature.”
