Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

How much junk is in space? What are the lost plays of Shakespeare?

When was the Sack of Rome? How long is a New York minute?

What building did Elvis last leave?

Get the answers to these and countless other vexing questions in All Facts Considered. Noted NPR librarian Kee Malesky presents a compendium of fascinating facts on intriguing subjects ranging from history and science to the arts, packing every page with valuable nuggets of information mined over her twenty-six-year career—everything from the useful to the downright bizarre.

"There isn't a journalist born who hasn't been tempted to—as they say—not let the facts get in the way of a good story.?And that is the genius of Kee Malesky.?Inquire about a fact, and she produces a tale, as seductive as it is accurate. Sacred cows, plastic soup, star-crossed lovers, the roots of red hair.?Within these pages you will be treated to a taste of the vast sweep of all things Kee—something we at NPR have long savored simply by dialing the number for 'Library, Reference.'"

—Renee Montagne, co-host of NPR's Morning Edition

"Kee Malesky enshrines the humble fact in a way that is both instructive and enchanting."

—Daniel Schorr, NPR Senior News Analyst

"Every one of us 'media figures' who appears smart or well prepared in public has somebody standing behind the curtains, knowledge at the ready, covering for our ignorance like Marni Nixon singing for Natalie Wood. My knowledge-double is Kee Malesky, who makes me and everybody else at NPR sound brighter than we are.?With this book, a little memorization, and some practice on your knowing, slightly world-weary tone, you too will seem smarter.?But not, ever, as smart as she is."

—Peter Sagal, host of the NPR news quiz show Wait Wait . . . Don't Tell Me!
