— From Grantland Vol 2


Grantland Quarterly is a collaboration between McSweeney's and Grantland, the popular website founded and edited by Bill Simmons. It features the best long-form sports and culture writing from the site as well as new print exclusives, delivered in a lavishly designed, full-color book. Issue 2 has a dust jacket that unfolds to reveal a double-sided poster with an intricate, gorgeous piece of original art on one side, and, on the reverse, a reprint of the rare 1970s poster of George "The Ice Man" Gervin from Nike.

Issue 2 also includes:
-Bill Simmons writing about the career of Eddie Murphy
-An interview with Don DeLillo about Underworld on the 60th anniversary of the Shot Heard 'Round the World
-Chad Harbach on his experience at the Milwaukee Brewers' last game of the 2011 season
-Charles P. Pierce and Michael Weinreb addressing the abuse scandal at Penn State
-Michael Schur (co-creator of Parks and Recreation) on the dismal collapse of the 2011 Red Sox.
