More 'In The News' From David

We've added a few books to our BOOKS IN THE NEWS table.

First, Bob Woodward's, The War Within: The Secret White House History 2006-2008. The is the most recent Woodward contribution to the dialog about the Bush presidency from the Washington Post's award winning author (All the President's Men).

A new book by Naomi Wolf, "Give Me Liberty: A Handbook for American Revolutionaries. As the practice of democracy becomes a lost art, Americans are increasingly desperate for a restored nation....But though it is easy to identify our political problems, the solutions are not always clear. Wolf illustrates the breathtaking changes that can take place when ordinary citizens engage in the democratic system the way the founders intended and tell tells how to use that system, right now, to change your life, your community, and, ultimately, the nation.

And, for fun, we've added Curtis Sittenfeld's ("Prep") new novel, American Wife. Kurt Anderson said, "What a remarkable (and brave) thing: a compassionate, illuminating and beautifully rendered portrait of a fictional Republican first lady with a life and husband very much like our actual Republican first lady's."
