I've been a fan of Sarah's work for quite a long time. From her pieces on This American Life to her published works like Assassination Vacation and TWSM she never fails to entertain as well as inform!

I've seen Sarah on late night and on Jon Stewart, she is really amusing, quick witted, and even challenging as a guest. A refreshing departure from most guests. I am three quarters through Wordy Shipmates and it is a nice easy and informative read. Her history is not dense as reading the Mayflower for example, but it is nice to get a very contemporary and witty perspective on the first arrivals, the local tribes, and the tenuous relationship with England. I am pleased to be able to see this on FORA and flesh it out a bit, but the questions are difficult to hear and she is obviously not feeling well. I think her book should be required reading in high schools and possibly college courses J Patrick in RI
