About Strong Inside
A New York Times bestseller, Strong Inside is Andrew Maraniss first book. “In a magnificently reported, nuanced but raw account of basketball and racism in the South during the 1960s, Andrew Maraniss tells the story of Perry Wallace’s struggle, loneliness, perseverance and eventual self-realization. A rare story about physical and intellectual courage that is both shocking and triumphant,” says Bob Woodward, Washington Post associate editor and author.
