The Mysterious Montague


Product Description
Product Details


"Critics who think bestselling sports biographer Montville's popularity rests on that of his gargantuan subjects, from Ted Williams to Dale Earnhardt, had better think again: He hits the pin in one with this page-turning account of a long-forgotten golfer....Explaining why reporters loved to write about Montague, the author declares, 'Intrigue is a better seller than great golf any day.' Here, he gives readers both."
--"Kirkus, "starred review
"Exceptional. Montville on Ted Williams is can't-miss, one of America's best sportswriters weighing in on one of the last century's most intriguing figures. A great read."
"--Chicago Tribune"
"In Ted Williams, Leigh Montville reaches a threshold even the mighty Williams could never touch: perfection. The beauty of Montville's work is that it is not a baseball book, per se, so much as the life and times of an oft perplexing, always fascinating man."
"Montville is refreshingly nonjudgmental about his superstar subject. First-rate biography."
"--Los Angeles Times Book Review"
"Crisp analogies and astute observations, combined with a fluid writing style, are Leigh Montville's strengths in this definitive biography of the Splendid Splinter."
"--Tampa Tribune"
"[A] vivid, intimate account. Montville's unique voice ... makes old yarns seem new."
"--Sports Illustrated
"Montville is a wonderful storyteller and Ruth's story, from Baltimore street urchin to international celebrity is indisputably amazing ... a fascinating tale, alternately happy and sad, and always artfullywritten."
"--Chicago Tribune
"The best Ruth biography to date ... [Montville's] adroit organization of the historical material--enhanced by newly studied archival material and oral history transcripts, together with his flair for marshalling undisputed facts that are intertwined with plausible speculations--has produced an engaging, entertaining, and eminently readable biography."
--"Library Journal," starred review
