Praise

“A wonderful and engaging book, not only for basketball and Knicks fans, but also a meaningful look about the importance of friendship.”Library Journal, starred review

“Harvey Araton is a Hall of Fame sports journalist who has taken his game to new heights with his compelling and heartwarming Our Last Season. This is a beautiful book about basketball and the wonders of being a sports fan. It also tells a delightful story about the power of friendship and the life lessons it can reveal.” —Christine Brennan, author of Best Seat in the House

“A fascinating memoir. . . . This heartwarming look at the life of a friend and die-hard sports fan is effortlessly charming.” Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Being a fan, at its core, is about believing in something bigger than yourself. This lovely book is about the biggest things to believe in, and some of the best—enduring friendship, unflagging loyalty, and love. In so many losing Knicks seasons, Harvey and Michelle forge a resounding victory—in a bond we can all share.”—Tom Rinaldi, author of The Red Bandanna

“Harvey Araton illuminates why he is the dean of New York sports journalists, navigating readers to the better story hidden inside the bigger story. The Knicks are in their post-glory era when they unite Araton and Michelle Musler. Through the next several decades, they seldom miss a game—he on press row and she in the first row, perched close enough to the bench to hear conversations between players and coaches, and to become Araton’s eyes and ears, his trusted source. As the NBA matured and evolved, so did their unlikely bond. Our Last Season is full of basketball wisdom but on a higher plane captures life’s complexities and the value of what matters much more than the games.”—Jonathan Abrams, author of Boys Among Men

“This is a story about friendship, sports, aging, and ultimately time itself—the things it strips away and the things it cannot touch. I loved it.” —Wright Thompson, author of The Cost of These Dreams
 
“As his generation’s signature basketball poet, Harvey Araton artfully writes of how his friendship with a woman even more passionate about the NBA and the Knicks than he is captures the romantic link between the world’s greatest city and the city game. This is Araton in full, career-defining flight, telling a heartwarming and heartbreaking story of compassion and trust, love and loss, and the simple pleasures and pursuits that bind us all.” —Ian O’Connor, author of Belichick and The Captain
 
“Harvey Araton gives us a gem of a memoir, a paean to a beautiful friendship. Backlit by Madison Square Garden, there is grandeur to it, and intimacy. More than Frazier or Reed, Ewing or Porzingis, it is Michelle Musler, Knicks uberfan, who rises triumphantly from these pages.” —Gary M. Pomerantz, author of The Last Pass
