I am keeping my fingers crossed that there will be an ad equally as controversial in the book-loving world during Super Bowl XLV. (Fat chance.)
If you missed it last year, read BookPage Editor Lynn’s funny response to the Bud Light ad. (Summary: “C’mon, lighten up!”)
Anyone want to share a favorite football-related book? I very much enjoyed Richard Rubin’s Confederacy of Silence a few years back. It’s about a young Ivy League grad who ends up working as a sports reporter in Greenwood, Mississippi; covers a promising high school football player he thinks is destined for the NFL; then comes back to town six years later when the player is on trial for murder.
