Gordon-Reed's Hemings History Wins National Book Award

Annette Gordon-Reed's The Hemingses of Monticello, a “prodigiously researched” history of Sally Hemings and her children, who were most likely fathered by Thomas Jefferson, has received the 2008 National Book Award for nonfiction.

Between this and the Obama win, I suspect that, somewhere, Paulie Abeles is seething. Or weeping.
