    Sarah Vowell travels through the American past and investigates the dusty, bumpy roads of her own life. Her essays confront a wide range of subjects, icons, and historical moments: Ike, Teddy Roosevelt, and Bill Clinton; Canadian Mounties and German Filmmakers; Tom Cruise and Buffy the Vampire Slayer; twins and nerds; the Gettysburg Address, the State of the Union, and George W. Bush's inauguration. The result is an engrossing audiobook, capturing Vowell's memorable wit and her keen social commentary.

    Erik says: "A great listen"
    "Funny, irreverent, and impossible to"
    Overall

    OK, so Ms. Vowell is frank about her political position. Rather that than the stealth bombing insurrection of so many authors. But get over it! I am quite conservative, and enjoyed this book, and her others, thoroughly. Her funny voice adds character, and I cannot imagine another reader. Her quirky sense of humor underscores her detailed knowledge of historic trivia. I would love to spend a vacation with her, and have already mapped out several excursions on the basis of this book. David Sedaris has met his match!
