KIRKUS REVIEW

At the time of his death Bill Corum was the head of Churchill Downs, and probably, through his life as a sports writer, his stories of horses and races were his greatest contribution. This posthumous autobiography is starred with such stories, and stories too of the other sports he reported -- the boxing ring, ball games, races; and he reviews also the events of his own career and the men he knew best in a disappearing group of truly great American sports writers, Grantland Rice, O. B. Keeler, Damon Runyon, etc. Corum was another who wrote with the best of them.
