What I'm Reading These Days
Pauline Maier, Ratification: The People Debate the Constitution, 1787-1788 (Simon & Schuster 2010). I thought I already knew a good deal about the constitution's ratification. I was wrong. This book is a revelation.
David Lodge, Thinks... (Viking 2001). One of my summer projects (not planned, but simply occurring) is to reread many (if not all) of David Lodge's novels. They are all great: intelligent, witty, and humane. Of those I've reread so far this summer, my favorite is Nice Work. But Thinks... is giving it a good run for its money.
