DOWN AND DERBY: The Insider’s Guide To Roller Derby (Soft Skull Press)
At first, it may be difficult to trust someone who goes by the name of “Axles of Evil” or “Kasey Bomber” as an expert, but Bomber and Evil (who also go by Jennifer Barbee and Alex Cohen) have collaborated to provide us with over seven years worth
of insider knowledge on the rough and tumble world of roller derby. It’s a how-to manual on everything derby. As members of the L.A. Derby Dolls since 2003, the authors use their personal experience, coupled with a well-researched history of the
sport, to write this guide. A must-read for any derby girl, roller wannabe or fan of the track. ( [Nicole Vermeer]
