Publisher's Weekly Review

Next in the I Remember... series is I Remember Arthur Ashe, a collection of firsthand accounts by friends, colleagues, coaches, journalists and others acquainted with Ashe in any number of ways. Edited by sportswriter Mike Towle, the book addresses not only the rarefied world of the tennis champion, but also the interplay between celebrity and race politics. Ashe, raised in a Southern, middle-class family and winner at Wimbledon and the U.S. and Australian Open tournaments, used his fame to spread awareness of apartheid and AIDS. The people who knew him lovingly chronicle his inspiring life. ( Feb.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
