$4.99
More Info
Among his devoted fans, his pieces were known simply as McGs. Robert McG. Thomas Jr. commemorated fascinating, unconventional lives with signature style and wit.

The New York Times received countless letters over the years from readers moved to tears or laughter by a McG. Eschewing traditionally famous subjects, Thomas favored unsung heroes, eccentrics, and underachievers including: Edward Lowe, the inventor of Kitty Litter ("Cat Owners Best Friend"); Angelo Zuccotti, the bouncer at El Morocco ("Artist of the Velvet Rope"); and Kay Halle, a glamorous Cleveland department store heiress who received sixty-four marriage proposals ("An Intimate of Century's Giants"). In one of his classic obituaries, Thomas described Anton Rosenberg as a "storied sometime artist and occasional musician who embodied the Greenwich Village hipster ideal of 1950s cool to such a laid-back degree and with such determined detachment that he never amounted to much of anything." Thomas also eulogizes a variety of colorful local heroes, from pool hustler Minnesota Fats, to Mason Rankin, founder of an AIDS group in Utah, to Sidney Korshak, "a famous fixer for the Chicago mob."

Thomas captured life's ironies and defining moments with elegance and a gift for making a sentence sing He had an uncanny sense of the passion and personality that made each life unique.

A World Without "Whom": The Essential Guide to Language in the Buzzfeed Age (USED)

A World Without "Whom": The Essential Guide to Language in the Buzzfeed Age (USED)

$5.99
More Info

A provocative and jaunty romp through the dos and don'ts of writing for the internet (NYT)--the practical, the playful, and the politically correct--from BuzzFeed copy chief Emmy Favilla.

A World Without Whom is Eats, Shoots & Leaves for the internet age, and BuzzFeed global copy chief Emmy Favilla is the witty go-to style guru of webspeak.

As language evolves faster than ever before, what is the future of correct writing? When Favilla was tasked with creating a style guide for BuzzFeed, she opted for spelling, grammar, and punctuation guidelines that would reflect not only the site's lighthearted tone, but also how readers actually use language IRL.

With wry cleverness and an uncanny intuition for the possibilities of internet-age expression, Favilla makes a case for breaking the rules laid out by Strunk and White: A world without whom, she argues, is a world with more room for writing that's clear, timely, pleasurable, and politically aware. Featuring priceless emoji strings, sidebars, quizzes, and style debates among the most lovable word nerds in the digital media world--of which Favilla is queen--A World Without Whom is essential for readers and writers of virtually everything: news articles, blog posts, tweets, texts, emails, and whatever comes next . . . so basically everyone.
