Sally Porter is a drab waitress, divorcee, and loner in the great city. But, though she is unaware of it, she is also four other, quite different people: Nola, the cold independent artist who has a studio in Greenwich Village; Derry, the happy-go-lucky tomboy; Bella, the sexpot with a talent for singing and dancing; and finally Jinx, the hate- filled killer. Whenever events put too much of a strain on Sally Porter, she feels a headache and a blackout coming on - and a new character takes over. If there is a man to be fascinated, she will become Bella. If there is an intellectual problem, she will become Nola. And - as happens in the opening scene of the novel - if there is a rapist to be dealt with, she becomes the vicious Jinx. It is the task of the wise and patient psychiatrist, Dr. Roger Ash - a man who nevertheless has severe problems of his own - to deal with this case of multiple personality and, through painstaking therapy, to try to fuse the four disparate personalities into "the fifth Sally."
The object of much debate, attention, and scholarship since it first aired more than 20 years ago, The Simpsons provides excellent, if unexpected, fodder for high school and college lesson plans. After all, laughing students are hardly sleeping students! But The Simpsons also provides a familiar student knowledge base which instructors can use as a jumping-off point to introduce concepts in literature, composition, linguistics, cultural studies, gender studies, and media appreciation. The authors, both of whom have been teaching The Simpsons for more than a decade, share exercises, prompts, and even syllabi that have proven successful in their own courses. Instructors considering this book for use in a course may request an examination copy here.
Editorial Reviews Review "Inspiring Story for Dyslexic Families and Adults" -Brock & Fernette Eide "Authors, The Dyslexic Advantage"- "What I admired most about the book was the positive attitude the author maintained. When most people would have given up and accepted mediocrity, Rodrigues instead chooses to push the envelope and follows his dreams up to and including enrolling in Harvard University. I love how he takes something that is called a "disability" and turns it into strength. It is evident that he has analyzed the way he thinks visually and found unique methods to work smarter, not harder." -Arline Krieger LDA President, California "John Rodrigues has written an inspiring and empowering story about his personal dyslexic journey. Young people who have dropped out of high school or others who are thinking about returning to get their GED or to go the community college route will be encouraged by his honest recounting, light-hearted tone, and perceptive insights about his thinking style and advantages." --Brock & Fernette Eide "Authors, The Dyslexic Advantage" "We all long for success...usually going the typical route of graduating from High School, spending 4 years at college, starting a job and getting married. It's nice and safe and predictable. Well, seems Mr. Rodrigues couldn't do it that way if he wanted to. But he appears to have a special ability to see people and opportunity for what they are, doors slightly ajar; with a little push, new worlds opened up to him. He seems to have an uncanny ability to live his life in a very wide open way. I am jealous." -Rosemary B. Walker
