Format: Paperback
Dan Shaughnessy's style mixes straight sportswriting with non-stop pop-culture referencing. Augmented by panged quotes from sources ranging from former Speaker of the House Tip O'Neil to random fans from throughout "The Nation." Players from each era of Red Sox collapse - Johnny Pesky, Denny Galehouse, Bill Lee and yes, Bill Buckner - give their impressions of what it's like to serve the most terminally cynical sportsfan populace in the world. It even features text from interviews with the descendents of Harry Frazee - the Sox owner who dealt Babe Ruth in order to finance his play, "No, No, Nanette." This book is the Book of Revelation for citizens of Red Sox nation, in which the author coins that term, the now constantly referenced title. If you're a fan of baseball, it's a must read. If you're a Red Sox fan, you can recite it.
