Daniel James Brown About his surprise bestseller The Boys in the Boat, new in paperback and optioned in Hollywood, our Daniel Person wrote last year: “During the ’30s, the UW and Berkeley became staunch rivals of Ivy League oarsmen.

Chosen to represent the U.S. at the 1936 Olympics, our homegrown boys would give Adolf one more thing to scowl at.” It’s a true story with a happy ending.
