More Ink

More good ink for This Pats Year. This time in the trade publication Library Journal, which reviewed the book along with along with Rammer, Jammer, Yellow Hammer by Warren St. John, which looks like a good read to me.

Here’s some of what LJ had to say about the books:

“Both books are essentially entertaining romps.”

“Despite all the fun the authors seem to have in their travels, they note some disturbing tendencies among many fans: large-scale drunkenness, racism, and homophobia, and a strong “us/them” mentality.”

“Still, both authors portray a football game as a pretty perfect place to be on an autumn weekend, and both books are recommended for medium to large public libraries.”

So that’s pretty good.

The This Pats Year Web site is almost finished and should be up soon, by the way. I will, of course, post something when it hits. In the meantime, you can get more information about the book, see the cover and find out about upcoming events (like the reading/signing at Barnes & Noble in Hadley Oct. 7) on the publisher’s Web site.
