I'm a big fan of Sarah Vowell, first from This American Life and, later, from her history books. Now I finally see what got all that attention in the first place. This collection of essays gives real insight into the delightfully morbid, "always find a dark cloud in that silver lining" perfectionist we've all come to know and love. In fact, it's downright prescient to see incipient interests that would later blossom into full-fledged projects like Assassination Vacation and The Wordy Shipmates. It's a fast, fun read that I'd recommend to TAL listeners, history buffs, and generally gloomy Eeyore-types..
