The entire time I was reading this book my husband had to put up with me turning to him in bed, interrupting whatever he was reading, and sharing whatever delightful anecdote or fact I had just come across. There were many of them. We remain married, which is testament to just how delightful all of those anecdotes and facts were. This nonfiction work interweaves a fascinating investigation I was shocked never to have heard of, with the history of a subject that should be quotidian and mundane, but in this authors hands was anything but. Check it out.
