The Boys in the Boat
The #1 New York Times–bestselling story about American Olympic triumph in Nazi Germany and now the inspiration for the PBS documentary “The Boys of ‘36” For readers of Unbroken, out of the depths of the Depression comes an irresistible story about beating the odds and finding hope in the most desperate of times—the improbable, intimate account of how nine working-class boys from the American West showed the world at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin what true grit really meant. It was an unlikely quest from the start. With a team composed of the sons of loggers, shipyard workers, and farmers, the University of Washington’s eight-oar crew team was never expected to defeat the elite teams of the East Coast and Great Britain, yet they did, going on to shock the world by defeating the German team rowing for Adolf Hitler. The emotional heart of the tale lies with Joe Rantz, a teenager without family or prospects, who rows not only to regain his shattered self-regard but also to find a real place for himself in the world. Drawing on the boys’ own journals and vivid memories of a once-in-a-lifetime shared dream, Brown has created an unforgettable portrait of an era, a celebration of a remarkable achievement, and a chronicle of one extraordinary young man’s personal quest. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Tour Paris 13
Perhaps the largest exhibition of street art ever attempted, Tour Paris 13 is the culmination of a movement that always strives for new forms of involvement from the viewer. Housed in a now-demolished 1950s-era nine-story apartment block near the Seine, 105 artists of 18 different nationalities created unique works in the interior as well as on the exterior of the building, allowing visitors access for only thirty days. The result was a pure, immersive experience that allowed artists free reign to indulge their creativity in an environment of open-mindedness and without commodification. This beautiful catalogue records the work of such urban art luminaries as A1One, Herbert Baglione, COPE2, Ethos, Peeta, Rea One, Seth, Stinkfish, Swoon, Vexta and Vhils.
