WHAT IF LIFE WAS A CONSTANT FIGHT?
This memoir is written in first person from Joe Lafferty’s perspective, with eleven “Other Voices” interludes. Each is written in third person as a feature news article. Famous “Other Voices” include Dan Marino, Bucky Dent, Art Kehoe, and Rob Gronkowski, all of whom were interviewed by Jeff Schober, sharing stories of their encounters with Joe through their unique lens. From ages 8 to 37, Lafferty overcame cancer, diabetes, vision loss, a pulmonary embolism, organ failure, open heart surgery, seven minutes of death, and a double organ transplant. He did all this while working for three Division 1 college athletic departments, the Orange Bowl, and the Dallas Cowboys. Lafferty has lived a life any sports fan would envy.
