That period in Boston was quite complicated and Connelly does a great job of intertwining the two parallel stories. It was a great book and the details are fascinating to read and remember. This is the second book that I read from this author and he has shown that he has the ability to bring great stories together.

A wonderful book that chronicles the racial divide in the City of Boston during the 70's on the back of the desegreagation order from Judge Garrity. Connelly draws paralells of this issue with that of the Celtics and their fall from grace during that same period. The story then culminates in the drafting of Larry Bird and renewed success of the Celtics while the city subsequently comes together. I enjoyed this book from cover to cover
