en Limba Engleză Paperback – 18 Oct 2022
In this "addictive" (Publishers Weekly) romp, intrepid sportswriter Rafi Kohan finagles access to our most beloved fields to find out just what makes them tick: from old-timer Wrigley, creakily adjusting to the twenty-first century, to the oversized monstrosity of Jerry's World in Dallas. Investigating harrowing logistics and deeply ingrained traditions, Kohan employs his infectious "wit and style" (Christian Science Monitor) to expose the realities of building and maintaining these commercial cathedrals of sports worship. "Highly compelling" (Kirkus Reviews, starred review), The Arena is a must-read for superfans, shameless bandwagoners, athletes, groundskeepers, culture junkies, and anyone who's ever headed off eagerly to the ballpark to catch a game.
