William Nack:
My Turf: Horses, Boxers, Blood Money, And The Sporting Life - Taschenbuch

2003, ISBN: 9780306812507

ID: 835404423

Da Capo, 2003. Soft cover. Very Good. 276 pages William Nack has won the prestigious Eclipse Award-given annually for the best magazine piece on horseracing-an unprecedented six times. His only previous book, Secretariat: The Making of a Champion, has been eloquently described by Laura Hillenbrand, author of Seabiscuit, as the "gold standard" of horse books.Now, Nack's finest turf writing, coupled with an ample assortment of dead-on profiles and investigative stories across the world of sports, is brought together in My Turf. Nack serves up unforgettable portraits: from his celebrated account of the death of Secretariat to his homage to both Yankee Stadium and Saratoga, including one-of-a-kind profiles of boxers Sonny Liston and Rocky Marciano, jockeys Willie Shoemaker and Robbie Davis, baseball players Keith Hernandez and the schizophrenic Martin Bergen, basketball coach Rick Pitino, and the chess master Bobby Fischer. In this stellar collection, longtime horseracing and sportswriter Nack takes readers through his career at the track, the ring and the stadium. He forgoes many of the thrills of the games themselves for the dramas of the people (and animals) who play them. A profile of a determined and nearly human Secretariat mixes easily with an account of Keith Hernandez's loneliness, Bobby Fischer's ambivalence toward celebrity, and Sonny Liston's poignant awareness of the effect his race has on his reputation, and vice versa. Nack also sets himself apart from other sports scribes with his prose style; rarely does sportswriting veer so easily into poetry. The author has an uncanny talent for finding the anecdote that illuminates greater truths about an athlete, such as heavyweight champion Rocky Marciano's paranoid refusal to accept checks. Anyone who has tasted the drama of sports-that is, the drama of being human-will enjoy this book, finding in its profiles of the larger-than-life an abundance of small pleasures., Da Capo, 2003
