Powells.com Interviews – Sarah Vowell – Powells Books


I’ve been listening to nerd-historian Sarah Vowell’s books recently, and have found in her a soul sister – I am also a nerdy history buff with a dark streak. Here’s an interview with her, in which she wins my heart with this fantastic quote:

History is full of really good stories. That’s the main reason I got into this racket: I want to make the argument that history is interesting. I’m still a big moviegoer and TV-watcher. I find in history the same plots and characters that I do watching the WB. There’s greed and lust and jealousy, good decisions and bad decisions, jerks and paragons. It’s action-packed.
