Book excerpt: An epistolary novel set on a fictional island off the South Carolina coastline, 'Ella Minnow Pea' brings readers to the hometown of Nevin Nollop, inventor of the pangram 'The Quick Brown Fox Jumps Over the Lazy Dog'. Deified for his achievement in life, Nevin has been honored in death with a monument featuring his famous phrase. One day, however, the letter 'Z' falls from the monument, and some of the islanders interpret the missing tile as a message from beyond the grave. The letter 'Z' is banned from use. On an island where the residents pride them-selves on their love of language, this is seen as a tragedy. They are still reeling from the shock when another tile falls. And then another... In his charming debut, first published in 2001, Mark Dunn took readers on a journey through the eyes of Ella Minnow Pea, a young woman forced to create another clever turn of phrase in order to save the islanders’ beloved language.

Book excerpt: First published by MacAdam/Cage in 2001, Mark Dunn's novel Ella Minnow Pea celebrates its twentieth anniversary under the roof of Penguin/Random House and the British publisher Methuen. Over the years it has become a mainstay of book clubs and middle-school and high-school English classes, has inspired a stage musical LMNOP, and is the recipient of multiple accolades, including winning the 2001 Borders Original Voices competition for fiction. Set on a fictional island off the coast of South Carolina, Ella Minnow Pea takes readers to the homeland of the late Nevin Nollop, the inventor of the pangram "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog." Lionized for this achievement, he's been honored with a monument featuring this famous phrase. But life for Nollopians drastically changes when the tile containing the letter "z" topples from the statue and island authorities interpret the fall as a message from Nollop from beyond the grave. They waste no time in banning this letter from all use. As other tiles fall, additional laws are passed which put increasing communicational constraints on the islanders, and ultimately undermine all the freedoms they had heretofore taken for granted. It is up to a young woman named Ella to restore order and sanity to the nation of Nollop, using the very tools used by Mr. Nollop to win the day. In this special anniversary edition by Dzanc Books, author Dunn is joined by talented illustrator Brittany Worsham. She enhances this tale - embraced for decades by readers throughout the world - with insight and whimsy as the story explores through this new graphic lens themes relating to language and freedom and human dignity in an era of political oppression. Readers, both longtime fans of the book and those newly discovering its power and literary merit, will cherish this special keepsake edition.

Book excerpt: When the only copy of his manuscript - a biography of a three-legged circus performer-cum-entrepreneur - is lost by a careless editor, writer Mark Dunn accepts an offer to publish the only surviving text: the footnotes. With great playfulness, Dunn writes himself into this full-length novel; a totally original story constructed mischievously in the margins of a lost book, and an extraordinary fictional life. The result is an irreverent but heart-warming panorama on the events and personalities of the entire twentieth century, an era that took itself too seriously. Witty, compelling and absolutely unique, Ibid is the most surprising novel you are likely to come across this year.

Book excerpt: From Geronimo! to gesundheit to haminahamina to holy mackerel, and from abracadabra to zoinks, Mark Dunn and Sergio Aragonés show you interjections like you've never seen them before. Often thought of as unnecessary verbal fringe or simply linguistic decoration, interjections (ahem, howdy, mamma mia, pshaw, tally-ho, whoop-de-do) may well be the most overlooked part of speech in the English language. ZOUNDS! A Browser's Dictionary of Interjections focuses the spotlight on this most deserving (and sometimes most demented) grammatical group. A light-hearted look at more than 500 interjections, ZOUNDS! explores the origins of these essential words and highlights the contributions of these previously unheralded parts of speech. Perfect for both word lovers and the casual reader, ZOUNDS! brings together the linguistic talents of Mark Dunn, author of the award-winning novel Ella Minnow Pea, and the graphic hilarity of Sergio Aragonés, the legendary cartoonist and contributor to Mad Magazine, for a delightful romp through grammar, culture, and the English language. Famous interjections include: "Eureka!" -Archimedes "Badabing-badaboom" -Tony Soprano "Stuff and nonsense!" -Alice, Alice in Wonderland "Bah! Humbug!" -Scrooge "Fiddle-dee-dee !" -Scarlett O'Hara "Leapin' lizards!" -Little Orphan Annie "Nanoo, nanoo" -Mork, from "Mork & Mindy" "Dyn-O-Mite!" -Jimmie Walker, "Good Times" "Bully!" -President Theodore Roosevelt
