Frank Deford is a sportswriter for the PBS set - someone who delivers smart commentary and some of the best sports journalism ever created. His career reaches back to the 1960s, when he wrote for Sports Illustrated under the legendary editor Andre Laguerre. But Deford's writing reaches far beyond sports magazines, to a memoir, a novel and thirteen other books.
