Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A young man's journey through the Philippines' most unlikely obsession: basketball.

In Pacific Rims, Rafe Bartholemew, journalist, New Yorker, and veteran baller, ventures through the Philippines to investigate the country's love of basketball.

From street corners where diehards fashion hoops out of old car parts to the professional league where politicians exploit team loyalties to win elections, Pacific Rims gets the story-and gets in the game.

About the Author

Rafe Bartholemew is currently an assistant editor at Harper's magazine. He received his master's degree from Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism.
