Product Overview

Since its inception in 1915, the Best American series has become the premier annual showcase for the countrys finest short fiction and nonfiction. For each volume, a series editor reads pieces from hundreds of periodicals, then selects between fifty and a hundred outstanding works. That selection is pared down to the twenty or so very best pieces by a guest editor who is widely recognized as a leading writer in his or her field. This unique system has helped make the Best American series the most respected -- and most popular -- of its kind. Buzz Bissinger selects the very best writing on a vast variety of competitive endeavors, from baseball to weightlifting, skating to demolition derby. Herein todays foremost journalists -- among them Gary Smith, Elizabeth Gilbert, Bill Plaschke, and Rebecca Mead -- throw revealing light on a pantheon of stars: Shaquille ONeal, Bobby Fischer, Mike Tyson, the San Diego Chicken, and more. *Author: Stout, Glenn/ Bissinger, Buzz *Series Title: Best American Sports Writing (Paperback) *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 352 *Publication Date: 2003/10/10 *Language: English *Dimensions: 8.22 x 5.52 x 0.94 inches
