Description: Bestselling author Mike Sager's fourth collection showcases his deftly-written journalism at its best and most mature, a riveting marriage of crime reportage and you-are-there literary anthropology.The book's centerpiece examines the rise and fall of football RoboQuarterback Todd Marinovich-a previously unpublished, thirty-plus thousand word "nonvella" version of his ASME-award winning Esquire story, the inspiration for ESPN's acclaimed documentary, The Marinovich Project. Other true stories include up-close visits with super-celebrity Paris Hilton, South Asian Republican hopeful Gov. Piyush "Bobby" Jindal, Ultimate Fighting Championship impresario Dana White, and coaching phenom Pete Carroll.Plus: A man who spent twenty-nine years in prison for a crime he did not commit. A Muslim immigrant who worked to save the life of the white supremacist who tried to kill him. The best-dressed man in America. An ugly guy in a town that worships beauty. A farm in the mountains where wounded marine veterans are taking care of their own. And "The Porn Identity," where a divorced dad takes to the road to find former starlets and to rediscover his mojo.
