"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

The Power and the Glory

I’ve got a piece in the Scorecard section of Sports Illustrated this week on “21,” the fantastic new graphic biography of Roberto Clemente.

Deadspin has a cool excerpt

This one is a keeper and the ideal companion to David Maraniss’┬ádefinitive biography, “Clemente.”

"Definitive biography of Clemente?" Hmmm, I might have something to say about that...

No offense intended, sir!

Ha ha! I just wish Maraniss had spelled my name right in the acknowledgements and sent me a copy of the book!

Jeez, I don't know how I missed this, both here on the site and in the mag as well. I'll have to check it out.

Wow this looks cool...I'm a big Clemente fan....he's the only non-Yankee that I revere like a Yankee.
