Gary M. Pomerantz
Gary M. Pomerantz, historian, journalist and Stanford University lecturer, is the author of six nonfiction books on topics ranging from history to sports to civil rights. His newest book, The Last Pass: Cousy, Russell, the Celtics, and What Matters Most in the End (Penguin Press), a narrative about race, regret and encroaching mortality, centers on the relationship between basketball icons and former teammates Bob Cousy and Bill Russell. Pomerantz's first book, Where Peachtree Meets Sweet Auburn, on Atlanta’s historic rise from the ashes of the Civil War, was named a New York Times Notable Book of the Year. He also authored WILT, 1962, about Wilt Chamberlain’s legendary 100-point game (a New York Times Editors’ List selection), Nine Minutes, Twenty Seconds, about an aviation crash, and The Devil’s Tickets about a Jazz Age murder and trial. In Their Life’s Work, a narrative about the 1970’s Pittsburgh Steelers, he explores football’s gifts and costs. For the past twelve years, Pomerantz has taught reporting and writing at Stanford’s Graduate Program in Journalism. Visit his website at www.garympomerantz.com.Read more Read less
