Praise

“A satirical round of intrigue, sex and golf for those who like to discuss their reading at the 19th hole.”—USA Today “A raucous romp of a novel . . . that skewers the game’s lunacies and lunatics with dead-solid perfection.”—Sports Illustrated"The best sportswriter in America."—Larry King“Dan Jenkins is the nearest thing to Ring Lardner this generation has ever seen. No one has captured the essential lunacy of the twentieth-century sports (and TV) scene as accurately and hilariously.”—Los Angeles Times“Jenkins is hilarious, providing more laughs per page than any other writer in the ‘bidness’.”—People”Dan Jenkins is a comic genius”—Don Imus“His writing and his ear recall—there is no higher compliment—Ring Lardner, though in different times and different Americas”—David Halberstam, New York Times Book Review
