About the Author
A native of the Bronx and longtime pal of basketball guru Phil Jackson, CHARLEY ROSEN led the league in technical fouls during each of his six years as a coach in the now-defunct Continental Basketball Association. Since then he has become the world's foremost writer of fiction and nonfiction on the subject of basketball, chronicling the drama that takes place both on and off the court. His many novels include The House of Moses All-Stars, a New York Times Notable Book, and Sammy Wong: All-American. His non-fiction works include The Scandals of '51: How the Gamblers Almost Killed College Basketball and More than a Game, with Phil Jackson. Rosen is an analyst for hoopshype.com and a devotee of the Triangle Offense. He lives in Accord, NY.
Reviews
"As well as he knows basketball, [Sammy Wong] knows the human heart equally well. Sammy is a young man born into one culture, with its beliefs, prejudices, and customs, trying to make his way in an entirely different world. That's a significant burden, borne by many American immigrants. Sammy is just one fictional example who happens to play basketball, and he is a memorable character in a memorable novel." --Wes Lukowsky, Booklist
