I usually wait
to comment on books I'm officially reviewing until the review actually runs, but in this case I'm too enthusiastic to wait. The Trouble with Tom: The Strange Afterlife and Times of Thomas Paine is exactly my kind of book--lots of skeletons and weird medical-history facts, aside from its other charms. The author is Paul Collins, editor of the McSweeney's Collins Library imprint. I'll post a link to my review once it's up, but for now let's just say "highly recommended."
