picks: Lafayette in the Somewhat United States by
Recommended by Kathleen Honchen, Library Clerk
(Audio book version) If you like the
idea of learning something without feeling like you are back
in a boring classroom, Sarah Vowell is the author and
teacher for you. She delivers her considerable knowledge of
American history with her own unique brand of humor and
"...From the bestselling author
of Assassination Vacation and Unfamiliar
Fishes, a humorous and insightful account of the
Revolutionary War hero Marquis de Lafayette--the one
Frenchman we could all agree on--and an insightful
portrait of a nation's idealism and its reality."
- Goodreads book review
Sarah Jane Vowell is an American
author, journalist, humorist, and commentator. Often
referred to as a "social observer," Vowell has authored
several books and is a regular contributor to the radio
program This American Life on Public Radio International.
She was also the voice of Violet in
the animated film The Incredibles. Vowell reads
all of her audiobooks herself, which is a big factor in
making these audiobooks so enjoyable. This is her newest
book but I can recommend all her audiobooks.
