Confessions of a Hero-Worshiper by Stephen J Dubner

As a boy, Stephen J. Dubners hero was Franco Harris, the famed and mysterious running back for the Pittsburgh Steelers. When Dubners father died, he became obsessed-he dreamed of his hero every night; he signed his school papers Franco Dubner. Though they never met, it was Franco Harris who shepherded Dubner through a fatherless boyhood. Years later, Dubner journeys to meet his hero, certain that Harris will embrace him. And he is . . . well, wrong. Told with the grit of a journalist and the grace of a memoirist, Confessions of a Hero-Worshiper is a breathtaking, heartbreaking, and often humorous story of astonishing developments. It is also a sparkling meditation on the nature of hero worship-which, like religion and love, tells us as much about ourselves as about the object of our desire.
