To The Brink: Stockton Malone And The Utah Jazzs Climb To The Edge Of Glory
To The Brink: Stockton Malone And The Utah Jazzs Climb To The Edge Of Glory
by Michael Lewis
Hardcover from Simon & Schuster
ISBN: 0684856867

"To the Brink" is a no-holds-barred look behind the scenes at the sports world's favorite oxymoron--the Utah Jazz--as they make one final fight for that elusive championship ring in the 1997-98 season. 8-page photo insert.

What separates To the Brink from most annals of a team's season is the ending: the Jazz ultimately failed. All the tumult, anxiety, and excitement that led to this failure make Brink a far more textured tale than the one that would have been written had they prevailed over the Bulls in the 1998 NBA championships. Lewis naturally centers on the often brilliant play and moody personalities of future Hall of Famers John Stockton and Karl Malone, but he works all sides of the court here, and good stories emerge, from Coach Jerry Sloan's metamorphosis in the face of his wife's cancer to the tense bickering over Greg Ostertag's inflated salary and deflated performance. Regularly counted out and always underestimated, the Jazz surprised the NBA by doing what they do best: playing solid ball and prevailing in the West on what often seemed like a triumvirate of heart, perseverance, and Malone's charismatically gargantuan will. They shocked the talented Lakers, sweeping them in the conference finals 4-0 to earn a return trip to face the Bulls in the title round, where they succumbed, a game too soon, to one of Michael Jordan's more sublime moments. That the loss is preordained riffs; like a bad date with destiny, you keep hoping for the best, but a sad air of resignation prevails. --Jeff Silverman

 
Utah and All That Jazz
by Calvin Grondahl
Paperback from Signature Books
ISBN: 0941214869

Welcome to the surreal world of best selling crtoonist Cal Grondahl. Through his R. Crumm-like visions, he introduces us to the state's "Anti-Pleasure Patrol" and its motto, "To Protect You From Yourself"; through hyperopic images we witness latter-day gulls attacking hordes of Utah deer hunters; we visit "Park City, Colorado," which boasts the least cultural ties to the Beehive State; we see the first structure built in the Salt Lake Valley in 1847--a pioneer basketball court to proselyte Indians; and we find out why some Utahns insist on leaving to "escape extreme sensory deprivation." Once again Grondahl successfully lampoons America's favorite twilight zone--that stretch of emptiness between Nevada and Colorado.
