										-- The Week's Best Reading from the Barnes & Noble Review --
										April 6, 2012

										Katherine A. Powers, whose column, A Reading Life, annually celebrates
										the
										seasonal renewal of our national pastime, this week takes a look at some
										of the
										newest players in the world of baseball books, including a touching
										story of
										friendship between two baseball greats and a chronicle of 1968's
										dramatic
										changes on and off the diamond. Hailing from New England, Katherine's
										not immune
										to regional feelings when it comes to the summer game -- as she puts it,
										'certain Yankee-related events have been so traumatic that they are best
										designated by numerals alone.' But, whether writing about baseball tales
										or
										belles letres, she calls them as she sees them.

										You'll find more great reading and writing every day at bnreview.com.

										Rachel's War
										Review by Ward Sutton

										'Nuclear armed flying robots. On remote control. What could possibly go
										wrong?'
										Fans of Rachel Maddow's MSNBC show will recognize the host's trademark
										wryness
										in her new book, "Drift: The Unmooring of American Military Power". But
										as Ward
										Sutton shows in his latest illustrated review, Maddow's look at the past
										and
										present of the American armed forces is no mere repackaging of a
										pundit's views,
										but an entertaining and informative primer on how politics has altered
										the
										soldier's mission -- from the days of Thomas Jefferson to the era of
										General
										Petraeus.

										Bestselling romance novelist (and B&N Review columnist) Eloisa James and
										her family relocated to

										Derby Day

										D. J. Taylor's novel captures the Victorian passion for horse racing, as
										enthusiasts from every walk
										of life converge on Epsom Down one summer. Much rides on the performance
										of proven winner Tiberius,
										but "sporting gentleman" George Happerton secretly wants his horse to
										lose so that he can win big at
										the betting window. Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize, it's a tale
										rife with romance and rivalry,
										period detail and Dickensian scope.
