David Guy lives in Durham, N.C. and is the author of Football Dreams (Seaview Books). Reynolds Price says, “Football Dreams is the best novel I’ve read about American adolescence since A Separate Peace. It’s painful, very funny, very true. The characters are young Pennsylvanians; but the emotions are adult, permanent wherever homo sapiens dwells. David Guy should be honored and read.”
