Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Grantland Quarterly #3 is the latest collection of the best writing from Grantland.com. Remember this winter's most important culture events: the New York Giants' second Super Bowl victory over the New England Patriots, the very sudden rise of New York Knicks' guard Jeremy Lin, the death of the ultimate diva Whitney Houston, the sweet spot of NBA nerd fashion, and much more. And in the event that you have forgotten or never learned how to dougie, we have a sheet of stickers with NFL referee Ed Hochuli teaching you how to do so. This might be the best collection yet. You should buy it.

Issue 3 includes writing from:

Bill Simmons

Chuck Klosterman

Kenny Powers (RIP Eastbound and Down!)

Jonah Lehrer

Katie Baker

Molly Lambert

Charles P. Pierce

*Plus: a special section devoted to the oral history of "The Malice at the Palace," the infamous Indian Pacers

Like its namesake website, Grantland Quarterly will regularly include some of the most exciting and form-pushing sports writers currently plying the trade, including Chuck Klosterman, Malcolm Gladwell, Tom Bissell, Harris Wittels, John Brandon, Anna Clark, Chris Jones, Colson Whitehead, and many more.
