Frank Deford's picture

Frank Deford

Writer and commentator, Frank Deford is the author of seventeen books. While Deford is often recognized as the finest sports writer of his era, his highly-praised historical novels have ranged far afield. Besides Bliss, Remembered, he has written about such varied topics as the polio epidemic (An American Summer), reincarnation (The Other Adonis) and Japan before Pearl Harbor(Love and Infamy).  His story about modern celebrity, The Entitled, is often also cited as the best novel ever written about the sport of baseball.
