Games We Used to Play: A Lover's Quarrel with the World of Sport by Roger Kahn

"A fine anthology." —PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

In these essays, written between 1954 and 1990, bestselling author Roger Kahn touches on locker-room controversies and politics, while inviting readers to share in the passion, grace, energy, and intense concentration involved in playing sports. Kahn pays warm tribute to his special heroes, Jackie Robinson, Roger Maris and Carl Furillo, along with those he particularly admired in the press box, John Lardner and Red Smith. Kahn also esteems football lineman Merlin Olsen, hockey goalie Glenn Hall, cager Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, outfielder Mickey Mantle, boxing promoter Don King, and last piece, "Story Without a Hero," about Pete Rose.

Praise for Roger Kahn:

"As a kid, I loved sports first and writing second, and loved everything Roger Kahn wrote. As an adult, I love writing first and sports second, and love Roger Kahn even more." —Pulitzer Prize winner, David Maraniss

"He can epitomize a player with a single swing of the pen." —TIME magazine

"Roger Kahn is the best baseball writer in the business." —Stephen Jay Gould, New York Review of Books

"Kahn has the almost unfair gift of easy, graceful writing." —BOSTON HERALD
