Why I love it
No living author does a better job of bringing history alive in funny and relatable way than Sarah Vowell. In this case, she brings to life the Marquis de Lafayette, a Revolutionary War hero that Lin-Manual Miranda called "America's favorite fighting Frenchman" in his hit Broadway show Hamilton. In fact, it's likely that that United States would not exist today without both of these me...
"Sarah Vowell has a sarcastic and fun tone throughout this book. Makes for a wonderful read."
"It's a testament to Sarah Vowell's writing style that I was able to learn so much in under 300 pages in such an engaging voice. "
"I love Sarah Vowell, and I loved this book in particular as I am into Revolutionary War history right now."
"Love the humor."
"It seemed like the author ran out of material at points...Very interesting at points, but some parts dragged. Could have used more about his return tour of the U.S."
