Search - List of Books by Allen Barra

Allen Barra is an American journalist and author of a number of sports books. He is a contributing editor of American Heritage magazine, and regularly writes about sports for the Wall Street Journal. He has also written for the New York Times and New York Observer, and was formerly a columnist for Salon.com. He currently blogs on sports for the Village Voice website.

His 2009 book on Yogi Berra, Yogi Berra: Eternal Yankee, was praised as "sturdy," "well-written," and "thorough" by the San Francisco Chronicle, but the New York Times thought it too enthralled with its subject.

In 2009 he was the target of a widely-read critique at the website Deadspin, which targeted Barra's subjective adoration for Derek Jeter.
