Doing the Splits

I get a kick out of customer reviews like this one: “Lots of split infinitives, but really interesting and important reading.” It’s not for my book, but for Gregory Martin’s Stories for Boys: A Memoir, which I’m currently reading and savoring as the most moving and insightful memoir I’ve read in a long while. I’m so engrossed that I had not noticed reckless infinitive splitting.
