From the Publisher:
The author of Princess Charming describes the incendiary New York Times article in which she denounced the Yankees for their poor performance and incited tremendous public backlash, a response that prompted her to follow the team throughout a season and explore the natures of competition, loyalty, and acceptance. 25,000 first printing.
Two months into the 2007 baseball season, novelist Jane Heller, an obsessed Yankee fan heartsick over their poor play, announced her intention to divorce the team, on grounds of mental cruelty, in the pages of the New York Times. Her words inflamed the passions of sports lovers across the country, and her piece quickly became the newspaper’s most e-mailed and talked-about article in the week it ran.
The intense reaction of fans forced Heller to look inward, and to re-examine her feelings about winning and losing. Was she a “bandwagon” fan, as some branded her? A traitor? In this witty, observant, and decidedly female look at the nature of the bond between fan and team, Jane Heller goes in search of answers. With her husband as her traveling partner, she literally follows the Bronx Bombers through the rest of their challenging 2007 season, hoping to score interviews with the players, watch every game in every city, and inject some excitement into her marriage.
Through interactions with other fans, as well as members of the media covering the Yankees, plus game-by-game analyses, Heller learns personal life lessons about competition, loyalty, and acceptance—and about why baseball, like any truly romantic relationship, requires commitment, patience, and a deep, abiding love.
Annotation:
After publicly "divorcing" her beloved Yankees in the pages of the New York Times early in the 2007 season, novelist and superfan Jane Heller was labeled a traitor and a bandwagon fan. In order to prove her loyalty, she and her husband attended every Yankee game for the rest of the season. She balances her efforts to repair her "relationship" with the team with her quest to prove to her husband that she really does love him more than A-Rod, Derek Jeter, and the rest of Yanks.
