[xii], 404 pp. a fine first edition of this extraordinary story. A flavour of the book, precied from the blurb. An extraordinary journey of eight working-class boys in 1930s America striving for the promise of glory at the heart of Hitler's Berlin at the 1936 Olympics. Stroke by stroke, a remarkable young man strives to regain his shattered self-regard, to dare again to trust in others. The backdrop of the Great Depression, The Boys in the Boat is narrative non-fiction of the first order; a personal story full of lyricism and unexpected beauty that rises above the grand sweep of history, and captures instead the purest essence of what it means to be alive. 0230763847
