Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: PREFACETO THE INSTRUCTOR"Celebrating Celebrity Power" INTRODUCTIONTO THE STUDENT I. CONSTRUCTING AND REPRESENTING A PRIVATE SELF 1. Origins and Turning Points 1. Whoopi Goldberg from Book, "Christmas in New York" "Christmas was it around our house." Whoopi tells how the rituals involved in the celebration of her holiday made for a family tradition that endures to this day and includes her life long love affair with Alastair Sim. 2. Sissy Spacek, "Homemade" "I've always had a deep sense of pride about being a Texan, and I remember thinking as a little kid, 'Oh, how lucky I am to be born in Texas, in this little town." 3. Joe Piscopo, "It's a Jersey Thing" "Here in Jersey, we've always been second-class citizens; we're the Rodney Dangerfield of states.but you can joke about it. It's part of who we are." 4. Margaret Cho, "Friendless in Frisco" Her Korean name meant lily, but it sounded like the English word moron. Even in Sunday School she was hounded; even children who had known her all her life were cruel. 5. Sammy Sosa, "Growing Up Poor in Consuelo" As one of a large family whose father died when Sammy was very young, the boy knew what it was to work and work hard. He also learned about something that was worth more than money. 6. Tom Cruise, "My Struggle to Read" "I was a functional illiterate," says the actor who hid his problem with dyslexia for years and finally learned to read only as an adult when he discovered Scientology. 7. Joan Rivers from Bouncing Back, "Responding To Suicide" Even with that evidence, I still needed time to believe what I was hearing. And these days, as I travel around the country giving my lectures, I learn over and over again that disbelief is an almost universal initial reaction to bad news. 8. Sting, "The Mystery and Religion of Music" "It's very hard to talk about music in words. Words are superfluous to the abstract power of music. We can fashion words into poetry so that they are understood in the way music is understood, but they only aspire to the condition where music already exists." 2. Becoming and Overcoming 1. Queen Latifah, from Revelations of a Strong Woman, "Being a Queen" "But how do fear, pride, and determination make Dana Owens a queen, you ask? And what right does anyone have to call herself a queen without sounding like one helluvan arrogant sista?" Find out! 2. Bill Murray, from Cinderella Story: My Life in Golf, "The Caddy Shot" Mr. Caddy-Shack was once a real- life caddy and learned to play golf at odd moments in odd ways. "To me the scariest words in all of golf are, It's a straight putt.'" 3. Toni Morrison, "Cinderella's Stepsisters" "I want not to ask you but to tell you not to participate in the oppression of your sisters." The award-winning novelist uses an old fairy tale to teach some modern lessons. 4. Lance Armstrong, "Back in the Saddle" After recovering from cancer,
