I’m just a grunt true-crime writer, so my reading habits are pretty simple. With baseball season upon us, I wanted to read a good book about our national pastime. To be sure, I went to a master, Paul Dickson, aka “The Godfather of Washington Writers,” who has just published Baseball Is . . . Defining the National Pastime. (I’m also looking forward to Paul’s upcoming book about baseball legend Bill Veeck.)
Also, Mimi, the long-time love of my life, has asked me to read How to Be a Gentleman: A Timely Guide to Timeless Manners by John Bridges. . . . I took no offense.
