An American Athlete Autobiography
March 4th, 2022
Read an autobiography of any American athlete. Briefly explain the form of the book you have read (e.g. structure, language, use of images). What is particularly striking about the structure? What did you find interesting and/or irritating? If you compare the autobiography that you have read to the (excerpts of) the autobiographies that we have discussed in class (e.g. Rapinoe, Sagan, Phelps) what are the similarities and differences? Pick one quote from the autobiography that you have read. Contextualize the quote within the book and explain why you think this quote is important.
