Assassination Vacation By Sarah Vowell

Simon & Schuster / 259 pages / $14

In an earlier life, Sarah Vowell was probably a member of the Addams Family. Who else would plan a national tour of places associated with presidential assassinations as the basis for a book? Last year, our reviewer, Stephen Kiehl, wrote, "Part travelogue, part history text and part memoir, Assassination Vacation is more fun than it has any right to be - a bizarre road trip into some of the most searing moments of the nation's past with one of our most amusing storytellers at the wheel."
