By the Book: The Legend

He caddied for prime ministers and gave lessons to kings, and rubbed shoulders with golfing greats in his own time. The Legend is about the life of a local sporting hero, V Nellan, focused not just on his love of golf but about a life well-lived and well-told. We speak to one of the co-authors of the book, Bob Holmes. After that, on Footnotes, in conjunction with the 4th of July, we talk about books that represent America today, in all its complexity and racial struggles.
