A co-publication of Harvardwood Publishing and Unlimited Publishing LLC, this definitive biography of America's foremost turf journalist goes far beyond horse racing. Evan Shipman had a talent for being where the excitement was. In the ’Twenties he lived in Paris and became a lifelong friend of Ernest Hemingway. (Gertrude Stein’s “You are all a lost generation,” was directed at Shipman and Hemingway.) In the ’Thirties he fought in the Spanish Civil War. During World War II he served in a tank battalion. In the late ’Forties and ’Fifties he established himself as our foremost turf journalist in the revival of harness and thoroughbred racing that followed World War II. This scholarly biography includes extensive references, bibliography and index.
