The press release...

Sports from In My Backpack provide the heart of Hocking’s new release, Title Town

New York (April 2017) – Bob Hocking is excited to announce the release of his seventh book, Title Town (and other tangents). A collection of sports essays, it will be available in print and electronic formats on April 18, 2017.

Sports-related material has always been an important part of the In My Backpack web site. There is a passion and excitement to be found in the subject. Over the years, Bob has attempted to capture, with both fact and opinion, all of these emotions and more over the years. And at the heart of his efforts, he has managed to remain true to the most important aspect of all: sports are supposed to be fun.

In Title Town, Bob brings together as a single collection more than three dozen essays. Most of them first appeared on his web site between 2003 and 2016, and these have undergone careful review and editing for this project. Also included are new efforts (“Is it a rivalry?” – “You can tell the story” – “The myth of pressure” – “Epilogue”), most of which have never been published previously.

A graduate of Syracuse University, Bob was born and raised in Rhode Island. He currently lives with his wife, Terry, in upstate New York.
