For Fans of Boys in the Boat...

Faster, By Neal Bascomb, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt: 368 pages. $28.00

In Faster, Neal Bascomb takes on the story of one particular racecar matchup of political consequence: the 1938 Pau Grand Prix, in which a Jewish driver in a French-engineered car owned by an American heiress triumphed over the Germans in their Mercedes. Much as in Boys in the Boat, another story about the entanglement of sports and politics in the lead-up to WWII, Faster reads like a novel. Despite the fact that the outcome is a matter of historical record, I felt compelled to read on well past my bedtime, suspense drawing me forward.
