Reviews

"Sarah Vowell is an intellectual melting pot. Her cleverness is gorgeously American..." - Los Angeles Times

"Its scintillating cast includes dour missionaries, genital-worshiping heathens, Teddy Roosevelt, incestuous royalty, a nutty Mormon, a much-too--merry monarch, President Obama, sugar barons, an imprisoned queen and Vowell herself, in a kind of 50th-state variety show. It's a fun book...[a] playful, provocative, stand-up approach to history."--The New York Times Book Review

"As entertaining and personable as it is informative."--Washington Post

"Sarah Vowell is for my money, the best essayist/radio commentator/sit-down comic and pointy headed history geek in the business."--Seattle Times
