#rsrh Amity Shlaes bringing out book on Coolidge.

As Ed Driscoll notes, it’s scheduled for June.  The title is simply “Coolidge“: hopefully you’ll get the joke.

Anyway, I very much liked Shlaes’ most well-known book The Forgotten Man: A New History of the Great Depression – it was any number of useful correctives to the existing narrative on the Great Depression, and it’s sort of depressing about how many of those correctives involve simply narrating events in a neutral tone – so I expect that I shall pick up this book.

    Ah yes, the apocryphal “You Lose.”

    We get the joke.

    I may have to make this purchase. I’m probably your only reader with a ‘Coolidge-Dawes’ ad on the back of his car…
