Synopsis: With Bliss, Remembered, the celebrated Frank Deford has produced a work of literature that ranks with the best of his many novels, including Everybody's All American, which Sports Illustrated ranked as one of the twenty-five best sports books of all time. In Bliss, Remembered, Deford explores new territory as he tells two love stories from the perspective of a beautiful should-have-been Olympic champion named Sydney Stringfellow.
At the 1936 Berlin Olympics, Sydney begins an intense love affair with a German, but the affair abruptly ends when political forces tear them apart. Back in the U.S., Sydney--daring, vulnerable, and memorable--is left healing her broken heart when a striking American begins to pursue her. In Deford's tender novel, the simplicity and honesty of choices of the heart clash with a brutal time--a time when choices seemed so dire in the enveloping shadows of a changing world.
About the Author: FRANK DEFORD, author of The Entitled, is senior contributing writer for Sports Illustrated (and six-time Sportswriter of the Year), NPR commentator, and correspondent for HBO's Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel. He has won a Peabody, an Emmy, and countless other awards. He lives in Westport, Connecticut.
