Contraportada:

The late 1960s and early 1970s, in New York City and America at large, were years marked by political tumult, social unrest . . . and the best professional basketball ever played. Paradise, for better or worse, was a hardwood court in midtown Manhattan.

Harvey Araton has followed the Knicks, old and new, for decades--first as a teenage fan, then as a young sports reporter with the New York Post, and now as a writer and columnist for the New York Times. When the Garden Was Eden is the definitive account of the New York Knicks in their vintage pomp. With measured prose and shoe-leather reporting, Araton relives their most glorious triumphs and bitter rivalries, and casts light on a team all but forgotten outside of pregame highlight reels and nostalgic reunions at the Garden.

Críticas:

"Brilliant . . . smartly written, featuring tons of interviews with the Knicks of the Phil Jackson-Clyde-Reed era."--New York Magazine

"Beautifully titled, wonderfully written . . . "When the Garden Was Eden" is a book about the assembly, success and failures of the Red Holzman-coached early '70s Knicks. But with the then-ongoing Vietnam War and general social unrest serving as the backdrop, it's actually about so much more than that."--SLAM magazine

"The coming NBA season may not happen due to labor strife. This book will help fans weatherthe storm by celebrating basketball at its very best: five players working as one, sharing the glory and achieving the ultimate success."--Booklist (starred review)

"Harvey Araton, one of our most cherished basketball writers, has evocatively rendered the team that New York never stops pining for--the Old Knicks. More than a nostalgic chronicle . . . it's a portrait of a group of proud, idiosyncratic men and the city that needed them."--Jonathan Mahler, author of Ladies and Gentleman, the Bronx is Burning

"Harvey Araton, who writes the way Earl the Pearl played, has made the Old Knicks new again. I learned so much and I was there."--Robert Lipsyte, author of An Accidental Sportswriter

I wasn t there when Clyde and Willis and Dollar Bill were lighting up the Garden, let alone barnstorming Philadelphia church basements, but after reading When the Garden Was Eden I now feel like I was courtside with Woody and Dancing Harry. --Will Leitch, founding editor of Deadspin"

Descripción HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2012. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Reprint. 194 x 136 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. In the tradition of The Boys of Summer and The Bronx Is Burning, New York Times sports columnist Harvey Araton delivers a fascinating look at the 1970s New York Knicks--part autobiography, part sports history, part epic, set against the tumultuous era when Walt Frazier, Willis Reed, and Bill Bradley reigned supreme in the world of basketball. Perfect for readers of Jeff Pearlman s The Bad Guys Won!, Peter Richmond s Badasses, and Pat Williams s Coach Wooden, Araton s revealing story of the Knicks heyday is far more than a review of one of basketball s greatest teams inspiring story--it is, at heart, a stirring recreation of a time and place when the NBA championships defined the national dream.
