Grantland Quarterly is a collaboration between McSweeney's and Bill Simmons's new web magazine Grantland. It will feature the best sports writing from the website, delivered in a full-color book featuring original artwork and a host of print-exclusives—including original fiction, new writing from editor-in-chief Bill Simmons, posters and pull-out sections, old-school baseball cards and mini-booklets, and a cover that looks and feels like you're holding a basketball. Like its namesake website, Grantland Quarterly will regularly include some of the most exciting and form-pushing sports writers currently plying the trade, including Chuck Klosterman, Malcolm Gladwell, Tom Bissell, Harris Wittels, John Brandon, Anna Clark, Chris Jones, Colson Whitehead, and many more. Bill Simmons on LeBron James's 2011 NBA playoffs meltdown, as well as a running diary of Hoosiers, in celebration of the movie's 25th anniversary Malcolm Gladwell on the NBA lockout Chuck Klosterman unearthing a breathtaking junior college basketball game in North Dakota Colson Whitehead on his journey to the World Series of Poker Jane Leavy remembering her father Fiction from Jess Walter

Bill Simmons and his contributors are orignal, witty & just plain entertaining. Sports, cuture and everything in between make an appearance in this first collection.
Besides if you do not read the book, the binding alone makes this worth the cost of admission-one of the most cleverly bound and printed books I have come across in ages.
