									Playing Piano in a Brothel
Author: Terry Frei

As he did in his acclaimed '77: Denver, the Broncos, and a Coming of Age and his earlier nonfiction
works, Terry Frei combines reporting, historical research, memoir, and opinion, discussing his varied
experiences and the diverse characters—including John and Jack Elway, plus 2010 Pro Football Hall of
Fame inductees Jerry Rice and Emmitt Smith—he has encountered in covering Colorado, national, and
international sports since he was a green sportswriter in the era of '77. Those diverse figures
includeOlympic heroes, Hall of Famers, world boxing champions, and other marquee athletes. He also
displays his knack for narrative and inquisitive journalism, introducing readers to intriguing figures and
taking them behind the scenes of some very high-profileevents and settings. All this follows a blunt and
unsparing assessment of the modern newspaper and sports journalism.
