liked it

for the first three chapters i was too distracted with his technique to just read. not his fault, all mine. his is the kind of storytelling i'd like to be able to do someday. i like that even though i am pretty sure i know where tough stands in the education reform debate, i trust his voice enough to tell the story honestly.

it made me think, too, how rare truly iconic figures like geoffrey canada are, and what gifts they are to the writers who profile them.
