After the game : a collection of the best sports writing by John McCarthy( Book )

1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sports writing has matured in recent years--partly out of need and partly because everyone now has more leisure time. With our increased participation in sport, whether as player or spectator, the reporter has been called on to put forth a little something extra. Especially since his by-line, which once appeared only on the back pages of newspapers, has moved onto bookshelves and into mass circulation magazines. Here then is a collection of my recent favorites together with an occasional voice from the past--a more gentle though still very competitive time. So should you find yourself otherwise alone after the game, relax and share with me these moments of excitement and quality. -- from the introduction, by John McCarthy
