Every month I’m going to inquire as to what The American Spectator staff is reading. Here are this month’s selections.
Matthew Walther, Assistant Editor
Nigel Nicolson, Long Life: A wonderfully sane memoir by one of Britain's most distinguished publishers. Partially adapted from old Spectator columns, but none the worse for that.
Alan Booth, The Roads to Sata (re-reading): An occasionally sad, and more than occasionally funny, account of a vertical trip through Japan, from Cape Soya to what is now Minamiōsumi. Easily one of the 10 best travel books of the last century.
