It is hard to pick favorite books from some of the prolific authors. I am too lazy to alphabetize for now.
Sarah Vowell – Assassination Vacation – full of good history and snark! I love it.
Chris Hedges – so many so good! Part of a group awarded the Pulitzer Prize for his journalism. Columnist for TruthDig.com
Matt Taibbi – The Divide: American Injustices Under the Age of the Wealth Gap
Katha Pollitt – Pro: Reclaiming Abortion Rights and Virginity or Death!
Robert Kuttner – Debtors Prison: The Politics of Austerity versus Possibilities, and several more, all excellent
