Una guía práctica, rigurosa y divertida sobre los buenos y malos usos del lenguaje

No se trata del típico handbook de estilo que cube si infanta se escribe con mayúscula o minúscula, si el gentilicio de París es parisino o parisién, o si guión va con tilde o sin tilde. Más bien se busca averiguar aquí si es cierto que los sinónimos son los angeles panacea del buen estilo. O si, en busca de los angeles intensidad, a veces no caemos en los angeles más pura redundancia. O si el temor a las palabras "vulgares" no nos condena a veces a una cómica pretensión de estilo "elevado" y tantas otras cosas más.
Luis Magrinyà propone una serie de observaciones útiles, divertidas y razonadas, basadas en multitud de ejemplos de textos de grandes (y pequeños) escritores, para invitar a pensar un poco en l. a. lengua. Y, así como recomienda evitar usos cansinos, perezosos e irreflexivos, señala también el sinfín de tentaciones que acechan en el camino de l. a. prosa "fina y bonita". Su propósito critical es tranquilizador: ofrecer indicios de que a menudo el estilo no tiene por qué estar donde nos han dicho, y animar a liberarnos de aquellos prejuicios, tantas veces inconscientes, que limitan nuestra disposición a los angeles hora de expresarnos y escribir bien.
