This collection of well-crafted essays spans more than 40 years of franchise history but hews to a single theme: the experience—sometimes humorous, sometimes painful—of being a fan of the New York Mets. From the sound of jets overhead to Keith Hernandez and the Seinfeld connection, Hofstra professor Dana Brand writes about the experiences and lore that make baseball in Queens unique. Mets fans will recognize themselves in this book, and everyone who enjoys great baseball writing will delight in the reading.
