  The Best American Sports Writing by Glenn Stout, Rick Reilly, , Houghton Mifflin edition, in English. "Sports Illustrated" columnist Rick Reilly selects nearly thirty works of American sports writing to represent the best of the genre from the year ; also includes biographical notes and a list of other notable pieces.

  The readers of this book are a unique constituency. For many, I suspect that The Best American Sports Writing makes a more or less regular appearance in their hands sometime between Labor Day and Christmas. It is something of a no-brainer for certain fans of sports and writing, an instant gift happily received. "[The Best American Sports Writing of the Century] demonstrates in a single, very large volume that sports writing is often much more than a trade for arrested adolescents. It has room, too, for poets and wits, for sharp-eyed reporters and world-weary wise men, for gifted stylists with a keen sense of the way we lived then and the way we live now.
