"Against Death and Time" chronicles one fatal season in the post-war glory years of race car driving. It is the story of the dispossessed young men who raced for "the sheer unvarnished hell of it." Yates has been writing for "Car and Driver" for more than thirty years and is one of the best-known people in the racing world. He raced his own car for a season in a Plimpton-like adventure recorded in one of his six books, "Sunday Driver". He has published widely, from "Playboy" to the "Wall Street Journal", and has appeared on every major television network as a racing and automotive industry commentator. Brock integrates unexpected and fascinating detail into this character-driven story of men compelled to compete against themselves, time, and death. His strategy of a fictional narrator observing, interrogating, and reporting on Brock's real-life protagonists imparts the immediacy of fiction to this minutely accurate account. The book is based on Yates's incomparable experience and interviews with dozens of surviving racers, widows, car owners, mechanics, and historians.
