I'm as surprised as you are, but after a slow start, I thought John Kerry's speech last night was very strong. (More on the DNC soon.) . . . Marilynne Robinson's Home is due out next week. I expect it to be one of the year's best books. One blogger has already posted an underwhelmed reaction, but reading between the lines it seems that his expectations may have just been too high, which is understandable after the brilliant Gilead. . . . The strong work at one of my favorite new sites continues with a look -- and a sniff -- at skunks.
