When Norman Mailer's Harlot's Ghost was published it contained a
grammatical error in the first sentence (and one can only imagine how
many human minds proof-read the thing before it went to press):

Here it is:

 "On a late-winter evening in 1983, while driving through the fog along
 the Maine coast, recollections of old campfires began to drift into the
 March mist, and I thought of the Abnaki Indians of the Algonquin tribe
 who dwelt near Bangor a thousand years ago."

The error was subsequently corrected.

So take heart.

a lot of the old grammatical categories have died out; the "dangling modifier" error has gone the way of the "split infinitive".
