Take the Cannoli

Take the Cannoli (Sarah Vowell, 2000) is a collection of essays, most of which appeared in one form or another on NPR,, etc. I liked some essays better than others--basically, my overlap points with Sarah Vowell are American history and fundamentalist childhoods, not Frank Sinatra and the Godfather movies. But it's a good book for reading over the holidays when you have ten minutes here and half an hour there, and Vowell has a way with words.

If you like novels with a Christian theme, may I suggest one to try? "Outcasts Of Skagaray" can be previewed by reading the sample chapters on Whatever happens, I wish you well with your own writing. It's the thing I've wanted to do all my life.
