Sport is the perfect fiction. We build the sets, we set the rules. We ensure that each play has a beginning a middle and an end. We guarantee that each story has triumph and tragedy.
And then it writes itself.
Sport toes the line between fact and fiction, self-contained and endlessly renewing.
The racers are voracious readers wanting to get to the end as quickly as possible, impatient characters wanting to learn their fate.
