Description
The author of the comic baseball novel Squeeze Play as well as the biographer of Sandy Koufax and Mickey Mantle, sportswriter Jane Leavy presents this collection of the year's best sports stories. "Each of these selections transcends its athletic subject," noted Library Journal, calling the book "a hit with both sports fans and those who are simply fans of good nonfiction." John McPhee writes of a particular fishing spot in "The Patch"; Chris Ballard offers a heartbreaking epitaph for a University of California coxswain in "The Courage of Jill Costello"; and P.J. O'Rourke compares child rearing and dog training in "Fetch Daddy a Drink." 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.
