 About the Book 

Robert Sullivans sports writing has appeared in Sports Illustrated, Time, Life, and elsewhere for many years. Now for the first time, all his best and most timeless golf essays are compiled in one book: You re Still Away: Golfing for Fun, GolfingMoreRobert Sullivans sports writing has appeared in Sports Illustrated, Time, Life, and elsewhere for many years. Now for the first time, all his best and most timeless golf essays are compiled in one book: You re Still Away: Golfing for Fun, Golfing for All of Us.Sullivan s pieces show him posed as a reporter, an essayist, a humorist, a travel writer, a profiler of famous folk, and a regular golfer, even a duffer. He discusses the role golf plays in father-son relationships with Raymond Floyd, and celebrity golfers from Clint Eastwood to Emeril Lagasse reveal where the game fits in their lives. He tells us about President Clinton and his mulliganitis and what that should have told us about Monica Lewinsky. There are personal pieces and satires and even pathos. Through Sullivan s eyes we see how Chi Chi Rodriguez s special school in Florida helps deeply troubled kids and a profile of young Harry Bane s efforts to soldier on in golf with a cancerous leg. Further, Sullivan s work includes opinion and criticisms of all aspects of golf culture and custom and provides healthy doses of history.You re Still Away is a love letter to a sport that so many of us enjoy, regardless of skill or lack thereof. Robert Sullivan s ability to illustrate the grand old game and bring it off the page is unmatched.A publication of Maple Street Press, distributed by Potomac Books, Inc.
