Collision of Wills: Johnny Unitas, Don Shula, and the Rise of the Modern NFL

Jack Gilden

Review from Sport in American History:

“Gilden, a Baltimore native, peels back the fog of 1960s football to bring two giants of the game into sharper focus. We see Unitas and Shula as they really were, and not always in a favorable light . . . Gilden brings [their] conflict into sharp focus with a compelling narrative and the perspective of people who admired both men.”

 

Pain Woman Takes Your Keys and Other Essays from a Nervous System by Sonya Huber

A Certain Loneliness: A Memoir by Sandra Gail Lambert

Featured in BuzzFeed News:

“These authors know and appreciate their bodies as deeply as I hope to know and appreciate my own one day, regardless of my level of wellness . . . These assumptions about disability and pain reveal how little we want to acknowledge disability or pain, as if awareness of someone else’s physicality, awareness of each other’s unfixability, burdens us.”
