B.S. Report: Jane Leavy

Grantland contributor Jane Leavy spent the past decade writing sports biographies about Sandy Koufax and Mickey Mantle (recently released in paperback). We talked about Koufax and Mantle, Jane’s experiences in being part of the first wave of female sports reporters, why Mantle means so much to guys over 50, and why it’s so hard to find a good topic for a future sports book. PS: Buy Jane’s latest two books if you like sports and like to read.
