              A study of the rape-revenge film. Jacinda Read suggests that the rape-revenge cycle can be read as one of the primary ways in which Hollywood has attempted to make sense of feminism and the changing shape of heterosexual femininity in the post-1970 period.

              The Comma Queen returns with a buoyant book about language, love, and the wine-dark sea. In her New York Times bestseller Between You & Me, Mary Norris delighted readers with her irreverent tales of pencils and punctuation in The New Yorker s celebrated copy department. In Greek ...to Me, she delivers another wise and funny paean to the art of self-expression, this time filtered through her greatest passion: all things Greek. Greek to Me is a charming account of Norris s lifelong love affair with words and her solo adventures in the land of olive trees and ouzo. Along the way, Norris explains how the alphabet originated in Greece, makes the case for Athena as a feminist icon, goes searching for the fabled Baths of Aphrodite, and reveals the surprising ways Greek helped form English. Filled with Norris s memorable encounters with Greek words, Greek gods, Greek wine and more than a few Greek men Greek to Me is the Comma Queen s fresh take on Greece and the exotic yet strangely familiar language that so deeply influences our own.

              Between You & Me: Confessions of a Comma Queen (EPUB ebook)

              By Norris, Mary

              The most irreverent and enjoyable book on language since Eats, Shoots & Leaves. Mary Norris has spent more than three decades guarding the New Yorker's grand traditions of grammar and usage. Now she brings her vast experience and sharpened pencil to help the rest of us, in a cha...rming language book as full of life as it is of practical advice. Between You & Me features Norris's hilarious exhortations about exclamation marks and emoticons, splice commas and swear words; her memorable exchanges with writers such as Pauline Kael, Philip Roth, and George Saunders; and her loving meditations on the most important tools of the trade. Readers - and writers - will find in Norris neither a scold nor a softie but a wise new friend in love with language. Mary Norris began working at the New Yorker in 1978. Originally from Cleveland, she now lives in New York. This is her first book. Her favourite pencil used to be the Dixon Ticonderoga No. 1, but she now makes do with the Palomino Blackwing. 'Informative, witty and very funny: a must for anyone who cares about what they write.' BookMooch 'A delightful mix of autobiographer, New Yorker lore, and good language sense.' Ben Yagoda '[The] verbal diagnostician I would turn to for a first, second, or third opinion on just about anything.' John McPhee, New Yorker 'Countless laugh-out-loud passages...A funny book for any serious reader.' Kirkus 'Mary Norris is a grammar geek with a streak of mischief, and her book is obscenely fun.' Marilyn Johnson 'Between You & Me is as entertaining as grammar can be. Very very. Read it and savor it.' Garrison Keillor 'Mary Norris's Between You & Me is so smart and funny and soulful and effortlessly illuminating. Well, she herself is so generous and great-what else would she do?' Ian Frazier 'Very funny, lucid, and lively...[Norris'] love of language transcends all, reconnecting the alienated pieces of this world-from the micromachinery of the serial comma up to the cosmic mystery of story.
