My husband has finally given birth!


Afer twenty-five years of pregnant thought and six years of writing and rewriting, my husband's magnum opus is finally out! It really is brilliant. But don't take my word for it. Read what the reviewers say:

“No one does art history and the history of memory as sublimely as Kirk Savage. In this book of extraordinary research and widely accessible prose, Savage brilliantly shows how America's most sacred and visible public space has evolved.” (David W. Blight)

“Monument Wars is the best single work I've read on the idea of the ‘monument’ in American culture, the best single analysis and history of Washington's shrines.” (James E. Young)

"Now maybe he will stop dragging us to monuments all the time!" (Our kids)

Here's the website:

First, give Kirk a big fat congratulatory hug, and second, I just tried to order a copy and there's something wrong with the U.C. Press site. I've sent them an email letting them know there's a problem.

Congratulations! So cool, but anyone who can come up with "rice rice baby" is clearly a genius.

I have no doubt about that.
