The Chicago Cubs, while beloved, have been the living example of disappointment and failure for more than a century—until now. In his new book, NPR’s Scott Simon shares his heartfelt reflections on his beloved Cubs, 2016 World Series winners, replete with club lore, memorable anecdotes, frenetic fandom, and wise and adoring intimacy. A lifelong Cubs fan, Simon never thought he’d live to see the day when they’d win it all. He chronicles his Chicago adolescence as a die-hard fan, exploring the relationship between the team and its city. From theories and curses to jinxes and myths, Simon chronicles how a team of “loveable losers” inspired such fervor and dedication from their fans, and how their big win transcended sports, positioning them as the ultimate underdog for an entire nation.
