George Plimpton is best known for taking to the arenas of professional sports and surviving to write about his experience--with grace, urbanity, and considerable good humor. But such classics as "Paper Lion" and "The Bogey Man" are only the most visible instances in a body of writing as remarkable for its breadth and diversity as for its elegance. Including profiles, essays, and such classic pieces as "The Curious Case of Sidd Finch" and "The Plimpton Small-Ball Theory of Sports Writing" (the smaller the ball the better the writing). "The Best of Plimpton" is a rich mix from one of America's most talented and unique literary personalities.
