"His prose...offers lasting lessons about matters journalistic and literary."-Robert Schmuhl, University of Notre Dame. "The most admired and gifted sportswriter of his time.... Red Smith's work...tended to be the best writing in any given newspaper on any given day."-David Halberstam, New York Times Book Review.
