Cubbie Blues: 100 Years of Waiting Till Next Year is an anthology chronicling the longest losing streak in sports history. Acclaimed authors such as Scott Simon, James Finn Garner, and Sara Paretsky take their places besides acclaimed fans like Ronnie Woo Woo Wickers, Lin Brehmer and Pat Brickhouse. The unique blend of voices, ranging from best-selling authors to long-time beer venders, explores the relationship these loyal fans have to their dubious team.

Review:

A home run. For every fan who's waited a hundred years, here's elegant and passionate proof that you aren't alone. --Marcus Sakey, award-winning author of The Blade Itself, At the City's Edge and Good People

It's possible that too much has been written about how hard Cubs fans have it. Come on, now. They get to watch baseball in a charming park where the company is sometimes less than entirely corporate. Still, there's something to be said for tradition, even if the tradition is complaining, and lots of the complainers collected herein are not only literate but funny. --Bill Littlefield, acclaimed sports author and host of National Public Radio's Only a Game

This anthology is full of great stories and wonderful anecdotes about the trades, plays and bad luck that make up the fiber of a true Cub fans' being. A book to keep near whilewaiting for next year. --Judy Rokyo, widow of legendary columnist Mike Royko
