Inhaltsangabe: The King of the Ferret Leggers and Other True Stories collects journalist Donald Katz's most fascinating profiles of people whose lives tell us something about business, adventure, sports, politics, culture, and in a brilliant, ancillary way, ourselves.
Katz's opening story and the title piece of the book offers a hilarious yet appropriately reverential look at 72-year old Reg Mellor, unparalleled "ferret legging" champion of Yorkshire and the world. Other characters who populate this book include fitness guru Jack LaLanne, legendary entrepreneur Paul Hawken, and master political cartoonist and inspired troublemaker Bill Mauldin.
While this collection contains portraits that are varied in scene and tone, their depictions of obsession, delusion, perseverance, creativity, and good-heartedness-the list could go on and on-remain a constant. Each of these stories conveys a sense of the strangeness, wonder, and oddity of life-a theme that provides a gravitational center to this multifarious selection drawn from twenty years of an award-winning non-fiction story-teller's body of work.
Über den Autor: Donald Katz is the author of Home Fires, which was nominated for a National Book Critics Circle Award, The Big Store: Inside the Crisis and Revolution at Sears, winner of the Chicago Tribune Heartland Prize for Nonfiction, and Just Do It: The Nike Spirit in the Corporate World.
