Masters of the Games: Essays and Stories on Sport

MASTERS OF THE GAME                             JOSEPH EPSTEIN

In this collection, his twenty-fifth book, Joseph Epstein departs from writing about literature and culture to indulge his fondness for the world of sport in all its forms. In these essays and stories on such subjects as saving Joe DiMaggio s reputation from the clutches of an iconoclastic biographer, marveling at the skills of Michael Jordan, shaking free of an addiction to radio sports talk shows, or contemplating the changing nature of the games he grew up with and played as a boy, Epstein turns writing about sports into an art at once penetrating and highly amusing." 

PAT'S REVIEW


This is a book of essays of either his time watching a sport or an athlete like Jordan, or commenting on someone else’s work about another athlete. For me, I could not get into this book and though I put it down a few times and went back to it, it still did not work for me. not saying it won’t work for others. I got this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 3 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com
