About the Author

Scott Simon is the host of NPR's Weekend Edition with Scott Simon. He has reported stories from all fifty states and every continent, and has won every major award in broadcasting. He is also a special contributor to CBS Sunday Morning and is the author of several books, including the novels Pretty Birds and Windy City, and the memoir Unforgettable. He used to list his hobbies as including, "bleeding for the Chicago Cubs," but no more.


"Scott Simon's "My Cubs: A Love Story" provides the emotional 108-year backstory. He lays out the context of suffering, of losses, of communal connections and religious devotion....His view -- the fan's perspective -- is no doubt crucial to understanding the significance of last year's World Series."
-Rick Maese, The Washington Post

"[My Cubs] reads more like a memoir or a journal of sorts, at times wistfully cathartic and at others joyously nostalgic." -Cubs Insider

"The author is a solid stylist, and his descriptions of Cubs' players, managers, and owners resonate, as do his anecdotes about his wife and daughters as they try to understand his mania." - Kirkus Reviews

"A short and heartfelt memoir about his lifelong love for the Chicago Cubs...Simon gives readers a wonderful look at how a Cubs fan--indeed, any devoted fan of any team--has a feeling of 'love, not loyalty.'" -Publishers Weekly

"A brisk, sweet romp through Cubs history to the glorious present." -BookPage
