    The History Worker

    Jenny Drai

    Anyone with a history should read Jenny Drai’s The History Worker. This book takes you from the lapidary Hearst Castle extravagance of California’s Central Coast through America to the wilds of Romania and other European outposts. Several journeys, a commentary and much history occur in a broken yet flowing text of details, discoveries and imprecations. We are caught up in Drai’s expeditions and implicated by her discoveries. The History Worker is “a sweet and voyeuristic pickle/marathon of wick-light” in the best, most dazzling sense.
