Superman Plus One

I will recommend two new books which sound interesting (though I have not yet read either one myself).

1. Superman: The High-Flying History of America's Most Enduring Hero is by Larry Tye, and here is a review of the book. The cool drawing above by Christoph Niemann accompanied that New York Times review (and I am far more partial to this image than I am to the artwork on the cover of the actual book).

2. Life at Home in the 21st Century is by Jeanne E. Arnold, et al, and will be published next month. One thesis of this book seems to be that we are drowning in the sea of collectible-stuff that we accumulate. Hmm.
