Our bedside reading list, though populated with some of the expected sabermetric claptrap, also veers towards the avant-garde. And since someone on the talented side of my family is "in the business", we occasionally get tipped off to the latest literary gem. This time, we were pointed to a piece in ‘Esquire’ by Michael Martone, director of the Creative Writing Program at the University of Alabama, entitled "The Death of Derek Jeter". Despite a title which will surely put the fear of God into our YF readership, we suggest you click through. The writing is fluid, elegant, and richly comic. It’s well worth the surf.
