Here’s another rather brilliant display of seemingly unlikely… associations, from our resident book-display-diva, Seija. She was inspired by the publication of the new Simon and Schuster book from Chris Matthews, Tip and The Gipper: When Politics Worked. That most unlikely of working relationships set her to thinking. The result? A whole table’s worth of masculine collaborations, rivalries, bands, comrades and big boy closeness.
As you can see, she had a lot of great new books with which to work.
Among the likelier pals, we have Fidel & Gabo: A Portrait of the Legendary Friendship Between Fidel Castro and Gabriel Garcia Marquez, by Angel Esteban & Stephanie Panichelli, from Pegasus Books.
Also, for the sports fans, Mickey and Willie: Mantle and Mays, the Parallel Lives of Baseball’s Golden Age, by Wall Street Journal sportswriter, Allen Barra, just out from Crown Archetype.
For music lovers, and Beatles boys, from Running Press, we have When They Were Boys: The True Story of the Beatles’ Rise to the Top, by Larry Kane.
And the last bromance for special mention, From Crown, and science writer, Sean B. Carroll, comes Brave Genius: A Scientist, a Philosopher, and Their Daring Adventures from the French Resistance to the Nobel Prize, the new book on the friendship of novelist, Albert Camus and scientist, Jacques Monod.
Barely scratched the surface, of course, of our “Yo, Bro” here. If you want to see the rest, you’ll have to stop by the bookstore while the bromance lingers on.
Dude, seriously, check ’em out.
