Nothing like the sound caused by laughing ice coffee through your nose.

That's what Sarah Vowell will make me do, trying to read her book anonymously in a café. As well as make me nod my head to agree or shake my head to sympathetically lament when Vowell is going off on another witty and wise cultural observation riff. This is my third Vowell book, and like the first two, her thoughts on things as disparate as goth culture and the Trail of Tears are the kind I always hoped a gabfest centered around overpriced coffee drinks or some microbrews would spawn: equal parts heartache, humor, truth, and love.

Good thing it wasn't beer going through my nose.
