THE BIGGEST COMPLIMENT

THE BIGGEST COMPLIMENT

Last week LeBron James returned to Ohio for the grand opening of a public school for at-risk children in his hometown of Akron. Two-hundred and forty children who are under-performing in math and reading comprise the inaugural class in the I Promise School. The LeBron James Family Foundation and it...

ROPES

I was zipping down the Merritt Parkway, nighttime summer air blowing through the windows, the radio tuned to an 80s station. My 12-year-old daughter cranked up Kim Carnes. All the boys think she’s a spy. She’s got Bette Davis eyes.

TIME FOR A NEW ENDING​

TIME FOR A NEW ENDING​

I’ve written a book called Little Pink House. I’ve produced a movie based on the book, which is currently in theaters throughout the country. Today I’m proposing that the City of New London do something bold and progressive — give back the land it took by eminent domain from...

AN APOSTLE AND A GENTLEMAN

  News Flash — As I was putting the finishing touches on this blog post, I received an email from Simon & Schuster, informing me that Tiger Woods has reached #1 on the New York Times bestseller list. I was so stunned that I was sure I had misread the email. How can this be? Then more...

 SEEING PINK

SEEING PINK

Tomorrow “Little Pink House” opens in theaters. The world premiere took place Sunday night at the Garde Arts Center, a historic 1,400 seat theater in New London, the city where the epic legal battle Kelo v New London was fought. It sold out, and hundreds more people were turned away at...

REAL TIME

REAL TIME

My life is crazy right now. Crazy in a good way. The Tiger Woods biography comes out next week, and today New York Times book critic Dwight Garner compared it to a Christopher Nolan movie, calling the book “a big American story that rolls across barbered lawns and then leaves you stranded in...

WHAT IF IT WAS YOUR DAUGHTER?

WHAT IF IT WAS YOUR DAUGHTER?

The publication date for the Tiger Woods biography has been moved up to March. It’s been a long haul, but last week my partner and I finally finished the last pages. The next day I boarded a plane with my wife and headed to an island in the Caribbean for a long-overdue vacation.

NOTHING STAYS THE SAME

NOTHING STAYS THE SAME

  I just put my wife and youngest daughter on a train to Virginia. I hate goodbye. Especially at the end of summer. Now I’m in a coffee shop with my oldest daughter, sipping a protein shake, listening to The Head and the Heart. Cause no one likes to be so lonely. No one likes to feel alon...

CHARLOTTESVILLE

CHARLOTTESVILLE

One year ago I was living in Virginia, about an hour from Charlottesville. I often boarded Amtrak there when I traveled north to New York or Connecticut on business. And on more than one occasion I walked through the very intersection where a bunch of people were mowed down on Saturday when a 20-ye...

THIRTY YEARS LATER

THIRTY YEARS LATER

My summer has been CONSUMED writing the Tiger Woods biography. But last weekend I took a much-needed break to go see U2’s Joshua Tree tour. It’s strange to write that sentence, given that I went to see the Joshua Tree tour thirty years ago. But U2 is doing a 2017 version of the tour to...

A NIGHT TO REMEMBER

A NIGHT TO REMEMBER

This post is about David Crosby’s concert for a friend. I know a CEO who wears cowboy boots and blue jeans and keeps a folded wad of crisp Ben Franklins in his pants pocket. His name is Glade Knight and he lives on a ranch outside Richmond. Twenty-five years ago he rescued a private girls sch...

MEETING A BEATLE

MEETING A BEATLE

This actually happened. Yesterday I was at a rehearsal with David Crosby in LA. He and his band are getting ready for the tour that starts next week. Partway through the rehearsal, David stepped outside for some air. A blue Corvette pulled up and the window went down. The driver was Paul McCartney.

ROCK ‘N’ WRITE

You know things are out of whack when you bring your work to the bedroom. But my wife has been out of town for the past couple weeks and I’ve got a deadline looming on a big biography. So I’ve been keeping my laptop beside my bed, enabling me to write until I fall asleep, and then resum...
