Winners of twenty-seven World Series titles, the New York Yankees are the quintessential sports dynasty. Love them or hate them, they cannot be ignored by anyone who professes to be a fan of the great game of baseball.

With Damn Yankees, Rob Fleder, former Executive Editor for Sports Illustrated magazine, offers a timeless collection of original essays by some of the most prominent contemporary writers in America--from Pete Dexter to Jane Leavy, from Roy Blount Jr. to Colum McCann--each piece focusing on one uniquely colorful subject: the fanatically adored/resoundingly despised "Bronx Bombers."

Funny, moving, provocative, insightful appreciations and detractions--from Babe Ruth to Mickey Mantle to Derek Jeter--Damn Yankees offers twenty-four fascinating takes on the most storied franchise of baseball's Major Leagues.
