Kirkus Starred Review, Firstborn: "A fantasy that reads like a lost history tome and deftly examines issues of gender...An engrossing story with welcome depths." http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_xj7TKOA856M/SxBiZna9n7I/AAAAAAAABUw/GUS6tl4MXQM/s1600/bedtime.png

Things That Make Us [Sic], Martha Brockenbrough



I'm giving an enormous shout out to the hilarious rgz media specialist, Martha Brockenbrough (aka MSN's Cinemama), for her new book, Things That Make Us (Sic): The Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar Takes on Madison Avenue, Hollywood, the White House, and the World. As Tom Robbins (Even Cowgirls Get the Blues) says,

"'Grammar' and 'glamour' have the same derivation: an old Scottish word meaning 'sorcery.' So, good grammar is not merely a glamorous antidote to creeping meatballism, it has the power of the black arts behind it. Martha Brockenbrough is hip to these secrets."

Congratulations, Martha!!!!!
