Lafayette in the Somewhat United States

Wit. Sarah Vowell’s wit tickles my funny bone, so I am willing to read whatever she writes. She turned her attention to the eighteenth century in America for her latest book titled, Lafayette in the Somewhat United States. Her curiosity about what brought young Gilbert de Motier, Marquis de Lafayette, to George Washington’s side in the Revolutionary War. Vowell studies the topic, thinks about it, and then draws readers into a witty and often ironic story that should keep most readers interested and engaged. Her connections of that time to contemporary life are a bonus and also a delight. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Lafayette in the Somewhat United States from
