B&N A Kind of Grace: A Treasury of Sportswriting by Women

Ron Rapoport, popular commentator on National Public Radio's "Weekend Edition" and Sports Columnist at the Chicago Sun-Times, brings together sixty-six of America's top women sportswriters in this remarkable anthology. Funny, heartbreaking and beautifully written, these pieces will delight women and men of all ages.

Praise for A Kind of Grace

Surely the day will come when the distinction between female and male sportswriters is no longer made; until then, sports enthusiasts can enjoy this collection of women journalists' unique perspectives and experiences. National Public Radio sports commentator Rapoport has gathered more than 70 articles by almost as many different writers, covering everything from basketball and horse racing to Little League and skating. Many of the articles focus on the specific challenges faced by female athletes, coaches, administrators and reporters, but all of the articles, explains Rapoport in his introduction, are intended to "give some sense of the changes in conscience and consciousness the growing number of women sportswriters have helped bring about."
