Publication Day for "Cancer Crossings"

It's official: "Cancer Crossings: A Brother, His Doctors and the Quest to Cure Childhood Leukemia" will be published this weekend.

Thanks to so many people for believing in the project, which was a departure for me in many ways.

The great group of editors at Cornell Press, starting with Dean Smith, Fran Benson and Suzanne Gordon, made this a much better book than the original manuscript.

Also, thanks to the doctors who spoke with me and took the time to explain what it was like to take on this shape-shifter of a disease. We lost Dr. James Holland, one of the giants in this field in recent weeks. But his words and philosophy live on in these pages.

And, finally, special thanks to my family. We've been through a lot together and we continue to sail for the far horizon.  Read More

The pretty much sums up where my head is at after I turned in the manuscript for the new book, working title SIXTY-EIGHT: THE YEAR OF THE PITCHER AND WHEN SPORTS SAVED AMERICA. This will be out in Spring 2012 from Da Capo Books.
Of course, there is still much to do.  Read More

Walking in Memphis

Just returned from Memphis and some great interviews, including those in Dr. Martin Luther Kings's inner circle, for SIXTY-EIGHT: THE YEAR OF THE PITCHER AND WHEN SPORTS SAVED AMERICA. Along the way, I swung down to Mississippi and have now visited all 50 states.
