Best American Sports Writing 1995 Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now in its fifth year and well established as the premier sports anthology, The Best American Sports Writing rounds up the year with one of America's favorite journalists sitting in the guest editor's chair. Selected from more than 350 American and Canadian newspapers and magazines, the 1995 collection covers a wide variety of sports and sports figures: a humorous commentary of NFL end-zone celebrations; a closer look at the art of cleaning fish; anorexia's frequency among female gymnasts; and a surprising review of Ken Burns's Baseball documentary. Also included are stories on O. J. Simpson, Ted Williams, Oksana Baiul, and Jennifer Capriati. Sure to delight both the general reader and the die-hard sports fan, these twenty-five pieces capture the world of sport in all its majesty, humanity, and color.
