Anthony Swofford on The Limit
Anthony Swofford, author of Jarhead, had this to say about The Limit:
"Before I wanted to become a writer I longed to become a Ferrari race car driver. The Limit dropped me into the driver's seats of the fastest cars in the world during the Grand Prix explosion of the 50's and 60's. The story here is compelling and FAST...the characters are massive men breathing speed and chewing adrenalin. This is a V12 blast of a book."
Author of THE LIMIT, published November 2011, and I.M. PEI: MANDARIN OF MODERNISM. Editor of the House & Home section of The New York Times for seven years. Contributor to The New Yorker, Sports Illustrated, The New York Times and many other publications.
