really liked it

Reading Sarah Vowell for the first time was like finding a long lost friend that I never met before. There was an immediate familiarity - the sense of deja'vu: as though we shared these conversations at the cafe about the awkward teenage years, sibling rivalry, quirky family relationships and more.

I immediately recognized something of myself in her writing, as well as something inspirational. I can't gush too much: there's a few pieces in here that are dry. However, I think you have to be a little more invested in the subject matter, whether you live in a big city or love Frank Sinatra (I do neither), but her style is strong enough to keep me entertained, if not interested. This is the first Vowell book I have read and I anxiously look forward to more!
