I was in Pittsburgh for the past few days, and shall likely have more to say soon, but I thought I should mention that through Eric's recommendation of the late David Stove I was led to Keith Windschuttle's The Killing of History, which I finished on the train today.

And I highly recommend it. As much as I recommend John Vanderslice's Cellar Door. Up Above the Sea is my early favorite for jam of the year.

I've thought about buying it -- none too expensive at Amazon. But I'd snagged the library's copy before my trip.
