A Pro Football Player's Extraordinary Revelations About His Sexual Identity.
reviewed David Kopay Story on + 4 more book reviews
Given that another professional athlete (Jason Collins) I decided to read this book, one that I had been interested in for a while. The story is heart-wrenching, although Kopay puts a positive spin on most things, including the difficulty some of his family had accepting his homosexuality. While I enjoyed the book, I was most struck by the difference in attitudes towards homosexuals in the 1970s (when the book was written) and today. The writing was not great, but worth a read, both for the story itself and as a historical reference point.
