NR’s own Rick Brookhiser recommends a few books for your Christmas-gift recipients:
Pops, by Terry Teachout. NRO’s deadline is such that I haven’t read it yet. But I have known Terry for ages; he has been thinking about Louis Armstrong for years. Armstrong is a great genius, with an all-American life. I expect the best.
Golden-oldie: John Randolph of Roanoke, by Henry Adams. Put a goblin in your stocking for Christmas. In fact, put two! Go ahead, be immoral: enjoy this.
