This Is The Author | David Gessner

“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 things—I wrote about my dad’s death, I wrote about the natural world—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, “This is what we should do.” And it was a quick proposal I’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.”
