9781611688047: Meeting Tom Brady: One Man's Quest for Truth, Enlightenment, and a Simple Game of Catch with the Patriots Quarterback

Imagine that you are an average American man. You work hard and love football. Your present is a highway of unbounded opportunity, your future a far horizon unclouded by doubt. Then comes middle age. Who can you look to when the highway begins to crack, when opportunity shrinks to the size of a cubicle, and the horizon looms close? For Richard J. King, the answer is clear: Tom Brady. The legendary quarterback of the New England Patriots is not just a four-time Super Bowl champion, three-time MVP, and certain Hall of Famer. He is a male epitome. Gifted but humble. Driven but balanced. Aging but youthful. Devoted to both career and family. At the pinnacle of success but somehow still one of us. If anyone can point the way to living a worthy life, Tom Brady can.

And so, at the start of the 2013 football season, King sets off in an ’88 Volkswagen minibus in a time-honored quest to answer life’s pressing questions—and to meet his hero. From training camp to the playoffs, from Spy-gate to Deflate-gate, King takes us on a tour of stadiums and bars across the country. Along the way he talks with players, sportswriters, and Patriots management, and poses the existential question, “What would you ask Tom Brady?” Meeting Tom Brady is funny and wise, a memoir of an eventful season in both King’s life and Brady’s—a determined pursuit, with uncertain results.

About the Author :

RICHARD J. KING teaches literature at Williams College at Mystic Seaport. He is the author of The Devil’s Cormorant and Lobster.

Review :

“The author . . . writes with engaging wit, in addition to illustrating the text with charmingly simple cartoon depictions of his experiences. Ultimately, the book is a short rumination on hero worship and teases the notion of what “common folk” might want to ask someone famous they encounter."—Library Journal

"This isn't just for Patriots fans. I related so much to the book being a 48 year old Jewish football fan from Long Island. Meeting Tom Brady is a fun read and easy to relate to in so many ways. Intelligent and witty."—Brad Kurtzburg, STN Sports Report, Cleveland

"It's a great book. A lot of fun. I breezed right through it. If you're a sports fan, you're going to love it. If you love the Patriots you'll love it. If you hate the Patriots you'll love it. And if you're a middle-aged man, you're going to love it."—Jim Parisi, PowerTalk1210, Tucson

"Brady becomes King's 'Great White Whale,' his great obsession. He goes to games in Gillette. He watches the away games, in a sports bar in [Mystic], Conn., where many of the other Pats' fans wear their colors, scream adolescent boy's fantasies. He does a road trip. The season goes on. And what will he ask him if they ever do meet? What would others ask him? Connecting with Brady dominates his thoughts. And through it all, Brady floats just out of reach. Isn't that what true celebrity is, right in front of us, but just out of reach, too?"—Bill Reynolds, Providence Journal
