Reviews

"John Ed Bradley says that all he ever wanted to do was to leave behind a pretty piece of writing. Here it is--a wonderful blend of honest introspection, passionate reporting, and superb storytelling. One of the best books I have read in years."--Jeffrey Marx, Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Season of Life

"John Ed Bradley is a rare gem, a gifted writer trapped in the body of a football player. It Never Rains in Tiger Stadium will send chills down the back of anyone who loves the game and will echo in the minds of former players long after they've put it down."--Tim Green, bestselling author and member of the College Football Hall of Fame

"A mesmerizing read . . . achingly sentimental in some parts, brutally truthful in others."--Chicago Tribune

"The best memoir I have ever read on how a particular game, win or lose, can linger with us."--Josh Levin, Slate

"An unsparing and often beautiful chronicle of [Bradley's] attempt to join polite society."--Play

"Heart-wrenching, honest, insightful and hard to put down."--The Franklin Sun
