A Year in Provence . . . in sweats
Some people would consider writing for "Sports Illustrated" a dream job. Others fantasize about living idyllically in the South of France. S. L. Price got to do both. Assigned by "Sports Illustrated" to cover sports in Europe, Price relocated his family to a small hamlet in Provence, and then set out to uncover the soul of world athletic competition.
In an attempt to comprehend the planet's most intense and bloody sports, he immersed himself in the cricket rivalry between India and Pakistan. He spent time with Lance Armstrong as the cyclist fended off rumors of performance-enhancing drugs. He argued politics with Olympic athletes in Athens, covered Austria's beer-drenched version of the Super Bowl, and caught basketball fever in Belgrade--as he, his wife, and children tried to adjust to life in a Europe convulsed by terrorism, anti-Americanism, and George Bush's war in Iraq.
"Far Afield" is an extraordinary memoir of growth, family, and games people play worldwide.
