Time for my book report: This week, I read well, listened to a fun history of the assassination of three American presidents. In Assassination Vacation , she travels to many spots up and down the eastern part of the United States, from upstate New York to the Dry Tortugas in Florida, a kind of pilgrimage that prompts reflection on the people who made decisions that altered the course of history.
She describes these peregrinations with a unique voice, and I mean that literally — you will be familiar with it if you have seen the excellent movie The Incredibles , for it is Sarah Vowell who voices the teen-aged daughter Violet. As I get older, I find myself drawn more and more to human history, in a way I never was as a teenager or college student. Your email address will not be published.
