Home and Away: Memoir of a Fan by Scott Simon

I don’t care about sports, and this is a sports fan memoir, and I am loving this book.

Sure, partly it might be a little because (as the actor Tom Conti is the British “thinking women’s crumpet”) Scott Simon is the American thinking woman’s Voodoo Donut. But this book is reminding me, as Story Corps always does, that it’s always the people (well, sometimes the dogs), that are the most interesting part of any story, and that good writing — about anything — is always a joy to come across.

Especially in a box of “FREE” books on the sidewalk.
