Book Launch: Nicholas Dawidoff presents Collision Low Crossers: A Year Inside the Turbulent World of NFL Football
In conversation with author Ted Conover
Nicholas Dawidoff, author of four critically acclaimed books and contributor to The New Yorker and the New York Times Magazine, unveils the hidden world behind a national obsession: professional football. The New York Jets gave Dawidoff a security code, a locker, and an office in the scouting department, and for an entire year he lived with the team. The resulting book is a human, affecting, and passionate look at the way experienced professionals attempt to impose order on a profoundly unstable pursuit, win control over an uncontrollable world, and deal with the inevitable loss and brutality of their industry. Dawidoff talks about his book and his experience with Ted Conover, the author of acclaimed books of participatory nonfiction including Newjack: Guarding Sing Sing.
