Audio Book Summary

A pioneer of the long-form sports story, W. C. Heinz wrote with a freshness of perception, a gift for characterization, and a finely tuned ear for dialogue. Here is a first of its kind audio edition of some of his finest work, selected and read by Bill Littlefield (NPR's 'Only a Game'), including “Brownsville Bum”—“the greatest magazine sports story I’ve ever read, bar none” (Jimmy Breslin)—and the unforgettable “Death of a Race Horse.” As a special feature this exclusive audio edition includes Bill Littlefield's 2001 interview with W. C. Heinz as well as commentary and recollections from the author's daughter, Gayl Heinz.
