Synopsis: Bob Greene walks Main Street, USA. The astonishing people he meets, the places he goes, and the things he sees are the subjects of his popular syndicated column, collected here in a volume of the very best of Bob Greene.
Whether he's writing about the man who wrote the hit song "Louie Louie," the bizarre meeting between Richard Nixon and Elvis Presley, the inventor who changed baseball, or the father and son whose annual one-on-one basketball shoot-out is a symbol of their love and of time's passage, Bob Greene shares stories in which we see ourselves. Filled with great empathy and insight that will evoke tears of laughter and sadness, these pieces are vintage Bob Greene, to be enjoyed and savored time and again.
From the Back Cover: "Bob Greene is a virtuoso of the things that bring journalism alive: literary talent, hard reporting, a taste for mixing it up haunch-to-paunch, shank-to-flank, and elbow-to-rib with people of all sorts." Tom Wolfe
"The enthusiasm and freshness he brings to his writing are fully on display in this compilation of some of his best recent work."
The Cleveland Plain Dealer
"Water covers two thirds of the earth and Bob Greene covers the rest." Playboy
