Print-Only: “Paul Jennings’s Dream (#4) and “American Still Life Paintings, 1820-1900: Gallery 69A (#20)”

My essays on two of the smartest presidents we’ve ever had, Madison and Garfield, are available now in print. “Paul Jennings’s Dream (#4),” about the burning of Washington, and how women and slaves saved a little of the White House, appears in the Fall 2016 issue of The MacGuffin, and amazingly is already sold out. Good news for fans of Presidents named James, though–you can still get a copy of the new issue of The Los Angeles Review, in which “American Still Life Paintings, 1820-1900: Gallery 69A (#20),” my essay on James Garfield, assassinated in the first few months of his presidency in a train station (which is now the site of the National Gallery of Art–hence the title!), is still available for purchase.
