Leslie,

You're absolutely right. As I recall, Trelease was a sportswriter for a
mid-sized Massachusetts daily when he decided to self-publish, fulfilling
orders from his garage.

Bee Cullinan at NYU saw the book and made an introduction or two;
Viking/Penguin published it; Landers championed it; and the rest is . . .
well . . . history.

Take care,

                John
