Examiner.com Interview: Behind the Scenes
Posted by Jon Littman on February 8, 2011 in Innovation, Publishing, Storytelling, Uncategorized

JOHN VALERI, THE HARTFORD BOOK EXAMINER, asked me some great questions about CRASHING AUGUSTA. “Long narrative stories are a challenge. You need to become close to your subjects without losing your edge or shading your portrayals. It’s natural and human to become friendly with people you spend a lot of time interviewing, but then you […]

Kirkus Reviews: Muscular reportage from the Pages of Playboy
Posted by Jon Littman on February 4, 2011 in Innovation, Publishing, Storytelling, Uncategorized

The Editors at Kirkus Reviews enjoyed Crashing Augusta! “Author and Playboy contributing editor Littman’s five feature-length articles demonstrate the power of shoe-leather reporting as a means of riveting readers… In one story, Littman gains entrance to one of the world’s most prestigious golf tournaments, the Masters—and does so by hobnobbing with Georgia gentry on $100 […]

Posted by Jon Littman on February 1, 2011 in Innovation, Performance, Publishing, Storytelling

What can you lose? Let go of? Say goodbye to?

Amazon Review: Crashing Augusta

5.0 out of 5 stars sports writing at its best, December 15, 2010

By Harvey L. Myman (California) –

This review is from: Crashing Augusta: Real life tales of sports, men, and murder (Paperback)

“If you wondered whether smart, literate sports writing still exists, look no further than this powerful book from Jonathan Littman. And while his prose alone is worth the price of admission, the true strength in the book is found in Littman’s reporting. He takes the reader inside of the greatest institutions and events in sports, from the Super Bowl to the Masters, revealing often dark corners that will never be explored by the ESPN hype machine or the beat reporters who are beholden to the teams and the leagues. He also explores the worlds of steroids and the amazing subculture of the world’s fastest runners. This is, quite simply, a remarkable book that should be required reading in graduate journalism classes.”

— Harvey Myman, president of Rocket Science Productions and former Assistant Managing Editor at the Orange County Register.
