This tour de force explores Jordan's public successes and private struggles, with the depth of Santiago's passion for his subject shining through on every full-colour page. Jordan became a national celebrity at the age of 19, scoring the winning jump shot in the final seconds of the 1982 NCAA Championship, earning him the moniker 'Air.' In 1992 he joined the Dream Team, an assembly of 12 legendary NBA players who steamrolled everyone at the Barcelona Olympics and brought the gold back home.
What s brilliant about Wilfred Santiago s Michael Jordan: Bull on Parade is how it works to reconcile the two sides of the person the public believed he was and the person he might actually be. It s an empathetic and exciting whirlwind of a story that spans across decades of tragedy and triumph to come out the other side with a portrait that could only end with a certain level of complex ambiguity. --Patrick Hess"
