52 Weeks: Interviews with Champions

Overview

Tired of athletes sounding like Stepford Wives-offering nothing but the most vapid sports clichés-and equally fed up with interviewers whose questions range from inane to rude to incongruous, Dave Hollander, a lifelong sports addict who runs the popular NYC nightspot Arlene's Grocery, spent a year tracking down the biggest names in sports and conducted very unusual interviews.

Overview

Tired of athletes sounding like Stepford Wives-offering nothing but the most vapid sports clichés-and equally fed up with interviewers whose questions range from inane to rude to incongruous, Dave Hollander, a lifelong sports addict who runs the popular NYC nightspot Arlene's Grocery, spent a year tracking down the biggest names in sports and conducted very unusual interviews. Shunting aside agents, handlers, marketing executives and public relations scripts, Hollander's Charlie Rose-meets-Jon Stewart style produces fifty-two stunningly candid and often laugh-out-loud Q&A's with Mariano Rivera, Steve Nash, Lawrence Taylor, George Plimpton, Rickey Henderson, Bill Bradley, John Wooden, Jim Bouton, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Jeanette "The Black Widow" Lee, Larry Holmes, John Riggins and many, many more. Laced with Hollander's charming and humorous memoirs, 52 Weeks is part manifesto, part sports journalism, part Aesop's Fables-a refreshing must-read for any sports fan.
