In my extended family's secret santa, I drew my uncle's partner, who I don't really know that well. Am thinking of getting him a book-- he likes politics (very left leaning), he's middle aged, from detroit... so, book recommendations based on that? Not sure of specific interests within history/politics.
Complication: would like something that not every self-respecting left leaning political book owner would have (maybe something released really recently?) YET still something I could find at a physical bookstore in a metro area rather than paying for fast shipping.
Other bland gift ideas for this sort of situation also welcomed, ha.
