Synopsis: The return of a sports classic with a new foreword by the author

Finally back in print after many years, here is Bill Lee?s classic tale of his renegade life on and off the mound. Whether walking out on the Montreal Expos to protest the release of a valued teammate or telling sportswriters eager for candid and offbeat comments more about the game than his bosses wanted anyone to know, pitcher Bill ?Spaceman? Lee became celebrated as much for his rebellious personality as for his remarkable talent. Add to the mix his affinity for Eastern religions and controversial causes, and you can see why Lee infuriated the establishment while entertaining his legion of fans.

In this wildly funny memoir that became a massive bestseller in the United States and Canada when it was first published, Lee recounts the colorful story of his life?from the drugged-out antics of his college days at USC (where he learned that ?marijuana never hammered me like a good Camel?) to his post?World Series travels with a group of liberal long-distance runners through Red China (where he discovered that conservatives don?t like marathons because ?it?s much easier to climb into a Rolls-Royce?). Lee also describes his minor league days, joining the Reserves during the Vietnam War, his time with the Red Sox, and the 1975 World Series. He spares no detail while recalling his infamous falling-out with Red Sox management that led to his trade to Montreal.

Full of irreverent wit, and an inherent love of the game, The Wrong Stuff is a sports classic for a new generation.

About the Author: Bill ?Spaceman? Lee is a pitcher and remains so.

Richard Lally is the author or coauthor of nineteen books including three bestsellers. He and Bill Lee have also collaborated on Have Glove, Will Travel.
