Ramblers: Loyola Chicago 1963—the Team That Changed the Color of College Basketball
by Michael Lenehan
This journalistic account of the Ramblers’ 1963 championship journey is an inspiring tale of the team that broke racial barriers in the college game. Agate Midway, $16

My Bright Abyss: Meditation of a Modern Believer
by Christian Wiman
The Poetry magazine editor begins to doubt God in the face of cancer—his cathartic story will resonate with anyone who has struggled with faith. April 2, Farrar, Straus and Giroux, $24

First Son: The Biography of Richard M. Daley
by Keith Koeneman
The first biography of the Machiavellian former mayor isn’t particularly revealing— Daley himself did not cooperate—but the colorful anecdotes and facts will delight Chicago political buffs. April 15, University of Chicago Press, $30
