Pieces of Eight (Humor)
1 chapters   —   updated Jul 05, 2010 10:47PM
Description: The eight Maggio kids grew up sharing everything from their fear of wild dogs to the neighbors' watermelon patch. Pieces of Eight takes readers into a world where sibling rivalry is a joke and watching each other's backs is the norm. The anthology's sixty-plus stories from their childhood (told with hardly any exaggeration) and e-mail exchanges from today (written with hardly any humor) recount poignant situations, instructive mischief, and rewarding moments. If you've always wondered what other families are really like, or why some brothers and sisters stay close while others do not, Pieces of Eight: Still Best Friends After All These Years provides some clues along with an entertaining read and some guaranteed smiles.

“Sexist language promotes and maintains attitudes that stereotype people according to gender while assuming that the male is the norm—the significant gender. Nonsexist language treats both sexes equally and either does not refer to a person’s sex when it is irrelevant or refers to men and women and to girls and boys in symmetrical ways.”
Rosalie Maggio, Unspinning the Spin: The Women's Media Center Guide to Fair and Accurate Language

“Accuracy of language is one of the bulwarks of truth. Anna Jameson”
Rosalie Maggio, Unspinning the Spin: The Women's Media Center Guide to Fair and Accurate Language

“But Unspinning the Spin is a more comprehensive and multidisciplinary guide to words and phrases—their meanings, sources, backgrounds, suggested uses, and alternatives—than has been published so far. It’s a guide for journalists and editors in this and other countries, for bloggers creating their own media and for government officials creating policy, for students and teachers at all levels, for activists, workers in communication fields, and for any reader who loves the English language.”
