John McPhee

John McPhee placed a high premium on his early experiences with the outdoors and sports, remarking that “well over 90 percent of [his] pieces” were drawn from interests he had before the age of twenty. Often expanding articles that first appeared in The New Yorker into books, he published A Sense of Where You Are: Bill Bradley at Princeton in 1965 and Arthur Ashe Remembered in 1993.
