Popular novelist Dan Jenkins is well known in the golf world for his column in Golf Digest. A modern classic among 20th-century sports novels, Dead Solid Perfect is Jenkins' hilarious send-up of professional golfers and the often ludicrous reality of life on the tour.

Critic Reviews

"This is vintage Jenkins - profane, outrageous, and sharp-eyed in its parody of the world of big-time golf." (Newsweek)
