Thanks, Rupert!So a month or so ago I was asked by the New York Post to review Marty Appel's new Thurman Munson biography. They sent me the book. I read it. Liked it. I wrote a review. Then I traded the book to Jason at IIATMS for a Chipper Jones jersey he didn't want anymore (query: what the hell is a Yankees fan doing with a Chipper Jones jersey anyway?). Pretty sweet deal all around (I think I got the better end of the trade, though).
Sadly, the review never ran, which happens sometimes. At least I think it never ran, because it never showed up on the Post's website and I can't find it online anywhere. Despite this, I just received a check in the mail for the full review fee (not a spike fee), which is strange even if the thing did run, because I am a procrastinator and I had neglected to send in the little invoice the Post requires before a check can be cut. Very strange.
Anyway, if anyone did happen to read my Thurman Munson book review someplace, please tell me how it turned out because I'm genuinely curious.

The Munson book is good. The New York Post is not.

As someone who spends his days doing arts PR in NYC, and who has looked at the Post’s website in vain for coverage of my employer, I can tell you that there are still times when the Post’s website is not all-inclusive. I think they expect people to pay for the paper or something.
That said, any chance you will post some version of your review? I’m interested in the book - what New York baseball fan who remembers Munson’s career and passing isn’t?
