Books & Beats: November 14, 2015
Sarah Vowell blends laugh-out-loud comedy with credible history. Her latest, Lafayette in the Somewhat United States (Riverhead Books), explains how the Marquis de Lafayette won over some very cranky tax protestors. In her review, Betsy Burton says Vowell’s “weaving of preset-day politics, the personal and the past, might annoy some, but for me she lights up that past until it illuminates the present.”
