Praise

“Poignant. . . . For fathers and sons, sports fanatics, and the people who love them.” —James Sullivan, The Boston Globe
 
“The lesson of the book is not only how sports create lifelong bonds, but how those memories go beyond the victories. . . .  I learned something from an author whose own life has been based around winning and losing. . . .  There’s a lot to be said for bonding that football creates, no matter how the games end.” —Kurt Kragthorpe, The Salt Lake Tribune

The Last Season is an instant classic. This is an absolute gift to sports fans. I don’t remember when I have enjoyed a book more than this one.  This is a special book, one people will share with their children and grandchildren. This book is truly one for the ages.” —Paul Finebaum
 
“In his new book, Stuart Stevens takes the time out from his extraordinarily successful life to spend one last season with his 95-year-old father. They spend a final year as father and son paying fanatical attention to every form of madness and bonding that Southern football represents. It’s Ole Miss, it’s nuts, it’s outrageous, it’s got depth and emotion, and it’s one of the best father-son books I’ve read in years. ‘Hotty Toddy’ is the only phrase you need to know to love this book.” —Pat Conroy

“Through the lens of college football, Stuart Stevens has produced a poignant tale of fathers, sons, race, and growing up in the South during the late 1960s. Besides being a delightful read, it is a reminder of the joy of relishing what is meaningful in life.” —Walter Isaacson

The Last Season is a touching, beautifully written story about the love between a son and his father, and their special lifetime bond formed around ‘Ole Miss’ football. Anyone, man or woman, who does not understand the seemingly insane, intense loyalty and devotion of the College football fan for his team, win or lose, should read this book. We soon find out it’s not just about football, it’s about all the good things in life. And just like all good things, I did not want it to end.” —Fannie Flagg
