really liked it
bookshelves: 2009
Read in February, 2009

I was familiar with Sarah Vowell from This American Life. Her strange little voice is made for humor, so having that in my head made the stories even more entertaining. The book is a mix of personal narratives and essays on American culture, and I generally preferred the former. Rarely laugh-out-loud funny, she has a dry, intelligent humor that comes across in all of these selections.

Zigra I actually like reading her stuff more than listening to her - I like her better in Pixar films than TAL. You might want to try Assassination Vacation - I read that last fall and liked it a lot.

Nancy Thanks! I'll put it on my to-read list.
