Head Butler reviews We Used to Own the Bronx

"Eve Pell makes me want to lace up my running shoes—real and metaphorical—and get going."

That's a snippet from another terrific review of Eve Pell's memoir We Used to Own the Bronx. Read the review over at Head Butler.

And yes, for those who didn't know, after befriending the Black Panthers and making documentary films on the dark side of American politics, Eve also became a world-class runner. This fascinating memoir has a little bit of everything.
