Editorial Reviews


"Upon Further Review is the next generation in sports literature criticism. The essays are challenging, cogent, and informed. Sports literature is alive and well and so are its younger critics. Perhaps the widest-ranging collection of essays ever amassed on the subject. Gender, race, and class perspectives underwrite deft cultural and aesthetic analysis. Will instantly become an indispensable guide to sports literature."-Chris Messenger, Professor of English University of Illinois at Chicago author of Sport and the Spirit of Play in Contemporary American Fiction

Book Description

Examines the ways in which American fiction writers and poets have used sports figures and sporting events in order to comment on issues of race, gender, class, and nationality
