Dave Wood's Book Report, July 29, 2009
It's fun to read real history written by someone with a flair for the narrative approach.
Such a real history is "In the Valley of the Kings," by Daniel Meyerson (Ballantine Books, $26).
Meyerson writes of Howard Carter, the British archaeologist who opened King Tut's tomb in Egypt back in 1922.
What a discovery! Meyerson's account said that thanks to the media, the world went crazy over King Tut memorabilia and one overblown news item after another.
