About this title


The pleasures of puttering about in history inspire the wit and zing of a singular stylist.

From the Publisher:

In "Brief Heroes & Histories," Holland wittily wends her way through the past with curiosity and offhanded eloquence. In this delightful miscellany, Holland sets her crafted sentences on the trail of such diverse figures as William Penn and Elvis Presley, and investigates topics ranging from the Orient Express to the history of ice cream.
