Reading: This Atom Bomb in Me by Lindsey Freeman

This Atom Bomb in Me

The granddaughter of an atomic courier, Lindsey A. Freeman turns a critical yet nostalgic eye to the place where her family was sent as part of a covert government plan. Through memories, mysterious photographs, and uncanny childhood toys, she shows how nuclear culture irradiated the twentieth century. Alternatively tender and alarming, her book takes a Geiger counter to recent history, reading the half-life of the atomic past as it resonates in our tense nuclear present.
