About this product
- DescriptionSammy Wong, All-American tells the tale of a very talented Asian basketball player's rise and stumble in the all-American sport of basketball - among the most international of team sports, yet one where until very recently Asians were completely unrepresented. Like all Rosen's vels, this is about more than basketball. It is a story about identity in multi-ethnic American culture and the cost of incence in the modern world.
- Author BiographyA native of the Bronx and longtime pal of basketball guru Phil Jackson, CHARLEY ROSEN led the league in technical fouls during each of his six years as a coach in the now-defunct Continental Basketball Association.
