Assassination Vacation by Sarah Vowell
Assassination Vacation

frenchyberne, January 1, 2012

I love Sarah Vowell's combination of interesting history and wry humor! She brings all historical figures to life; Puritans, Pilgrims and Missionaries. I've been on a Vowell kick and have loved The Wordy Shipmates, Unfamiliar Fishes and this hysterical tour of America's political assassins, Assassination Vacation.

Shadow Tag by Louise Erdrich
Shadow Tag

I've been a fan forever and she's written yet another great novel. This is a particularly tough one but her writing is too beautiful and inventive to turn it down.
