Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is a delight for anyone who loves tennis...or literature...or both. Like a well-curated art exhibit, Mr. Sexton has assembled a fascinating collection of writing that, in one way or another, illuminates the sport of tennis and the worlds surrounding it. The array of authors could not be more broad, from Vladimir Nabokov to Owen Wilson and Wes Anderson (as well as a delightful piece by Mr. Sexton), and the variety of insights into the game and its players is highly satisfying. (My favorite is an excerpt from Anne Lamott's CROOKED LITTLE HEART in which, in the middle of a match, the adolescent Rosie chokes...and cheats.) This is a superb collection, made even more enjoyable by Mr. Sexton's entertainingly personal introduction.

The book is a delight. Some of these pieces such as those by Nabokov and Paul Theroux have been published in other collections but overall the material is fresh. You'll probably dip and dip again over the years to come.
