Description
A Pulitzer Prize–winning feature writer as well as the author of the memoir The Tender Bar and collaborator for Andre Agassi's autobiography, J.R. Moehringer here collects 26 sportswriting pieces that hit a bull's eye as he read them, from Jonathan Segura's profanity-laced eulogy to a Scottish pal who loved Manchester United to The Wire creator David Simon's wry tribute to the 2012 Orioles, "Fear da Bird." Here too are Karen Russell's "The Blind Faith of the One-Eyed Matador," Burkhard Bilger's "The Strongest Man in the World," and Mark Singer's "Marathon Man." Since its inception in 1915, the Best American series has become the premier annual showcase for the country's finest short fiction and nonfiction. For this title, as for each of the others, a series editor reviews hundreds of periodicals, then selects between 50 and 100 outstanding works. The guest editor—a recognized expert in the field—then pares the list down to the 20 or so very best pieces.
