I Am Charlotte Simmons

Coincidence, I think not. Serendipity is more like it. I am looking at the new book shelf in my local library and what do I see but I Am Charlotte Simmons by Tom Wolfe and even though I am rereading The Hero for this blog I couldn’t resist. So guess what? The books are like bookends on the same subject with the earlier work probing in what seems now to be a very naive way the effect of sports on America while the later work digs in with relish to the very very sloppy American Sport’s Pie that we are all in the process of digesting.
