Description

Who better to follow the fortunes of a 'cursed' team like the Boston Red Sox than two renowned horror writers and lifelong Red Sox addicts? Red Sox fans have seen it all since 1918...except that elusive World Championship. The memory of 2003's devastating ALCS Game 7 loss and the anticipation of new ace Curt Schilling's impact made this season that much more compelling. Stephen King and Stewart O'Nan joined the rest of the Red Sox Nation to cheer on the Olde Town Team, with the eternal hope that this might be their year. On 27th October 2004, the Red Sox finally prevailed, taking an unassailable 4-0 lead over the St. Louis Cardinals in the best of seven World Series. Stephen King and Stewart O'Nan's email correspondence about the dramatic and ultimately heartbreaking 2003 season inspired the idea for FAITHFUL, a book that records the Sox's 2004 baseball season from start to spectacular finish.show more
