If you are of the generation to be amused by a tennis match between Bennett Cerf, a founder of Random House and panelist on the 1950’s game show What’s My Line?, and his contemporary, Manhattan saloon keeper Toots Shore, this is the book for you.
The brainchild of Canadian sportswriter Felix Harr, this second book of imaginary tennis matches, reaches back to Henry Clay and forward to Lydia Lunch. The players come from all walks of life. Alas, he found no match for Alfred Lord Tennyson.
Farr’s other two trips to the imaginary tennis court are Love or Nothing and All-Star Break.
