Books of the Month – September 2009

I loved three books this month, all very different from each other:

  • A Happy Marriage, a description of a fraught and very loving long-term marriage, supposedly a work of fiction but I have my doubts about that
  • Border Songs, the very sweet story of an unlikely border patrol agent
  • The Woman behind the New Deal, the life story of Frances Perkins, FDR’s Labor Secretary who brought us Medicaid and Social Security, and came very close to bringing us universal health insurance!
