“After I graduated from college, I set about becoming a writer and playing ultimate frisbee. And I kept doing those things for about 15 years. I wrote about a lot of thingsâ€”I wrote about my dadâ€™s death, I wrote about the natural worldâ€”but it never really occurred to me to write about ultimate. And then after my first book was published I got picked up by a big agent at ICM, and she looked over all my stuff and said, â€śThis is what we should do.â€ť And it was a quick proposal Iâ€™d written about going back and playing with the Boston National Champion Ultimate Team. And I would go back in a kind of George Plimpton fashion and play with them and write about the season.”
