An occasional series in which writers speak for themselves.
Longtime journalist and ESPN.com deputy editor Paul Kix is also the author of two books, The Saboteur: The Aristocrat Who Became France’s Most Daring Anti-Nazi Commando and now You Have to Be Prepared to Die Before You Can Begin to Live: Ten Weeks in Birmingham That Changed America. Publishers Weekly calls the latter “a gripping, novelistic account of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference’s campaign to desegregate Birmingham, Ala., in 1963…Readers will be riveted from the first page to the last.” Kix discussed You Have to Be Prepared to Die Before You Can Begin to Live with Blake McVey during a two-part interview in June.
