Description: The brilliant young author of Mr. Mike turns his acerbic, thoughtful and comic gaze on the most widely practiced group obsession of our time: that of professional sports fans. For true fans, sports is close to a religion, a substitute for politics; for many, it defines their everyday lives. It is these Americans who devote themselves to their favorite teams and players, and find there a curious but tangible form of self-esteem. "American Fan" explores this peculiar, fascinating, sometimes horrifying madness: the marketing strategies aimed at fans; the spectrum of fandom from the bleachers to the corporate box seat; women and girls, America's newest fan base; and how the leagues cater to the fan's love of violence. Dennis Perrin brilliantly takes the network TV camera and whirls it around to the stands, focusing on those who prop up the multibillion dollar sports industry: the fans.
