Description
The author of Zeus Grants Stupid Wishes and host of the website BetterMyths.com, Cory O'Brien is back to regale us with his blog-style take on American history and myth—which are the same thing, in his estimation: "Stories we dredge out of our past in order to make sense of the present." In his riffing, profoundly irreverent style, O'Brien does away with the usual pomp and circumstance to reveal our history for what it is—one long, violent soap opera, from before Columbus to the 1960s Space Race—and mines it for its inexhaustible supply of irony, hypocrisy, theft, bloodshed, and sex. We learn how Teddy Roosevelt stopped bullets with his manly chest, Harriet Tubman avoided danger by having prophetic seizures, Joseph Smith invented Mormonism by staring into a hat full of rocks, and Billy the Kid was finally defeated by the smell of fresh bacon.
