Jefferson Book Review Extravaganza!
And by "extravaganza" I mean "two book reviews in one issue." In the latest Virginia Magazine of History and Biography (vol. 117 no. 1):
- Douglas L. Wilson reviews Kevin Hayes' book, The Road to Monticello (review-o-meter: Wilson thinks the book is too long. The word "leaden" is used.)
- Catherine Kerrison reviews Annette Gordon-Reed's book, The Hemingses of Monticello (review-o-meter: overwhelmingly positive. Lots of description of the book's contents.)
