The Boston Globe on Sarah Vowell's "tour de force" Unfamiliar Fishes

“Vowell’s rich and well-researched Unfamiliar Fishes is a tour de force that winds through the political, cultural, and religious influences that led up to the annexation of Hawaii in 1898… She has a knack for vividly retelling epic tales with finesse and humor…. Vowell is a national treasure, exploring the depths of what it means to be American. Witty, irreverent, and wry, Unfamiliar Fishes is a heartfelt examination of the American Dream, told with a slight roll of the eyes in a way that only Vowell can do.” Read more...

Cleveland Plain Dealer on Sarah Vowell's The Wordy Shipmates

Sarah Vowell impressively summons the Puritans in her new book, The Wordy Shipmates

 "Vowell's words crackle on the printed page… smart, quirky and unabashedly incendiary… Vowell is very funny…. She is generous as she wrestles with the moral intricacies of our nation's beginnings and how Puritan contradictions inform our sense of American exceptionalism today…. The Wordy Shipmates is more than a punk-ish twist on our brave, verbose, tortured forebears, living in their new colony like 'an ashram in the woods.' Subversively, Vowell teaches as she goes, and her final reflections are genuinely moving." More...
