New Books: Lefty Kreh's My Life Was This Big

September 7, 2008 By: Marshall Cutchin

Skyhorse Publishing — owned by Nick Lyons’s son Tony — will publish Lefty Kreh’s memoirs in October. I’ve read My Life Was This Big (Skyhorse Publishing, 6 October 2008, 288 pages) and have to agree with Eric Sharp that it is a real page-turner, especially if you are not familiar with the larger-than-life character that Kreh has become in the half-century or so that he’s been fly fishing. The book is co-written by Chris Millard, who has ghost-written lots of other books by sports celebrities, including Jack Nicklaus and NASCAR’s Bill Elliot.
