Good Night, and Good Pitluk.
Got a copy of the forthcoming bookStanding Eight: The Inspiring Story of Jesus "El Matador" Chavez Who Became Lightweight Champion of the World
, which bears a cumbersome title worthy of this criminally prolix blog. But more important, the book, which Da Capo Press is publishing in May, was written by Adam Pitluk, a formerObserver
staffer who actuallytold the tale of El Matador in these very pages
during his stint here. Mazel tov, of course, to our old pal--and, of course, we take no offense to the fact that his book bio contains no mention at all of his former employer:
"Adam Pitluk is a contributor to Time magazine and has written for People and the Dallas Morning News, among other publications. Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, he now lives in Dallas, Texas."
