One of the best motor racing books ever written,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A French Kiss with Death: Steve McQueen and the Making of Le Mans (Driving) (Hardcover)
Most motor racing books are excellent reference works but lack literary style and page-turning ability. This is different - and how - a simply brilliantly told saga of the background to and filming of the real and staged 1970 Le Mans 24 hour race. When I received the book I simply could not put it down. The next task is to watch the film again, which I luckily have on video. Buy this book, which is now the joint best book ever written about motor racing, along with Mon Ami Mate by Chris Nixon - the style of writing of which is quite similar.
