  • Description or summary of the book: For nearly five years Arthur Agee's and William Gates' remarkable lives were chronicled by a team of filmmakers. Roughly 250 hours of film were devoted to their journeys from the playgrounds to high school competition to college recruitment and - whittled down to three hours - it became the award-winning film 'Hoop Dreams.' Now journalist Ben Joravsky vividly brings to light all the richness and subtlety of their stories, and the impact their aspirations had on themselves, their families and their relationships. It is an intimate look, complete with an up-to-date epilogue on the latest developments in their lives.'A heart-wrenching and uplifting story of survival.' '-Publishers Weekly' 'Reveals just how literally basketball is a means of survival in the inner city.... 'Hoop Dreams' offers new perspectives not only on basketball, but on family and societal relationships.' '-Book Page'
