Sarah Vowell is the New York Times’ bestselling author of six nonfiction books on American history and culture. By examining the connections between the American past and present, she offers personal, often humorous accounts of everything from presidents and their assassins to colonial religious fanatics, as well as thoughts on American Indians, utopian dreamers, pop music, and the odd cranky cartographer. Her most recent book, Lafayette in the Somewhat United States, is a lively and insightful portrait of Revolutionary War hero Marquis de Lafayette.
