Curse No More

by Shannen W. Coffin

Dan Shaughnessy, author of The Curse of the Bambino and thus the man who stood more to lose than anyone from the Red Sox winning the World Series, has updated the story in Reversing the Curse: Inside the 2004 Boston Red Sox, forthcoming from Houghton Mifflin at the end of March. K-Lo, Rich and other Yankees fans may want to stay home the day I file my book review. One of my favorite aspects is that the book skips from Chapter 12 (“When the Yankees Really Did Suck”) straight to Chapter 14 (“No More Curse”), with the explanation that: “There is no Chapter 13. This is the year of the happy ending.” Stay tuned for an Opening Day (or thereabouts) book review. But first I have to read it. I know it will be a labor of love.
