Book Note: "The Wordy Shipmates"

Ethical considerations (I'm in the acknowledgments and even make a brief and amusing cameo appearance in the text) bar me from offering an official review of Sarah Vowell's forthcoming book The Wordy Shipmates (due in October from Riverhead). So I'll just say that if you like Sarah Vowell's work, or are interested in an amusing take on Puritan culture with a generous helping of snarkiness, make sure to pick this one up.
