Synopsis

From the author of Paper Lion

Following his turn as a Detroit Lions rookie in Paper Lion, George Plimpton returns to the field of American football and focuses on the careers of his Lions teammates, Alex 'Mad Duck' Karras and John 'the Bear' Gordy. What he uncovers is a fond tribute to the values and follies of this brutal, but captivating game.

Paper Lion was the quintessential look at a football team behind the scenes and its companion, Mad Ducks and Bears, offers an astute exploration into the fascinating lives, thoughts and motivations of the players at home, in the locker room, and on the field.
