The Portable Veblen by Elizabeth Mckenzie
"Update: $1.99 Kindle special today!!!!
I liked this book so much that I bought the physical book after having received the arc for free. I actually sat and talked with Elizabeth McKenzie last week at the Saratoga library when she came to speak.

The Portable Veblen by Elizabeth Mckenzie
"Based on reading other Goodreads reviews, it seems to be impossible to review this book without using words like "quirky," "offbeat," "strange" or "oddball"... for good reason. After all, how many novels have a heroine who has a passionate attachm..." Read more of this review »

Matthew is 50% done with The Portable Veblen: I'm about halfway through, and I can't help but imagine that it's an allegory (even though it clearly couldn't have been intended that way) for the Democratic primaries.

I hope they find a way to work it out before the Convention in Philadelphia!
