I’ve reviewed a new book about Dungeons & Dragons, one of my favorite boyhood pastimes, in the Wall Street Journal:

Forbes writer David Ewalt tells the tale of Dungeons and Dragons—”one of the most passionately loved, bestselling, and most controversial games ever made”—in “Of Dice and Men,” an engaging book that fuses history and memoir. He tracks D&D’s turbulent rise, fall and survival, from its heyday in the 1980s, when it became a fad and then suffered from business blunders, to the 21st century, as new owners have tried to revive the game. Along the way, Mr. Ewalt describes his rediscovery of a pastime he had enjoyed as a teen.
