EspañolThrough the author bio on an article I read somewhere I came to learn about the book The Triumph of Liberty by Jim Powell. I immediately went online, as I often do when something intrigues me, and purchased a previously owned copy from Amazon and waited expectantly. A few days later, the book arrived; a plain blue hardback cover with the word “WITHDRAWN” stamped in bold red across the binding like an ugly indictment. The book had been checked into a university library in the Midwest a decade before, and never checked out — not once.
Unfazed, I began to read.
