Posnanski on Paterno


GQ has an excerpt, or rather an excerpt of an excerpt, from Joe Posnanski’s biography of Joe Paterno, which I’m sorry to hear is being published next week.

Posnanski had the remarkably good luck to be invited by Paterno to spend the fall of 2011 in State College, for the purposes of giving him semi-inside access to the program as he completed his biography. Given subsequent events this would seem to require something of a re-conceptualization of the whole project (I wasn’t a big Joe Paterno fan before last November, but I would never have guessed he was a criminal sociopath).

Given that it normally takes several months to get the final text of a book from the edit to the book store, it now appears Posnanski is going to publish more or less the same book I assume he had already largely written by last November, with a grim epilogue more or less tacked on.

Oh well.
