Plastic Ozone Daydream combines fact and fantasy on a wild ride through the birth, growth, and maturity of the sports car in America during the turbulent half-century, 1950-2000. The Baby Boomers changed everything. Look deeply into the reflection. Each story has its own identity, yet each is connected to all the rest. The author and his cast of affable characters say that 1970 was the pivotal year. Are they right? Plastic Ozone Daydream should stimulate your imagination as you cruise through the nostalgic Fifties, blast through the exciting Sixties with a burst of acceleration, and bring the anguish of the Nineties to the surface when your sports car cost more than your first house. These stories describe the broadest emotions with the least words. This book should remind us all why we love our sports cars. Plastic Ozone Daydream is intended to be both fun to read and challenging to the intellect, taking the reader on a journey he never knew existed— through the crossroads of his own mind.

Twenty-five years after his racetrack classic Laughing in the Hills, Bill Barich tells the story of how he fell in love and found a new life in Dublin, where he was soon caught up in the Irish obsession with horses and luck. Barich travels throughout his adopted country and meets the leading trainers and jockeys, the beleaguered bookies who work rain or shine, and a host of passionate, like-minded fans—from Father Sean Breen, the “Racing Priest,” to T. P. Reilly, whose peculiar betting system turns on a horse’s looks. Witty, philosophical, and vividly written, A Fine Place to Daydream is a paean to the real Ireland, a moving tale of a surprise romance, and a thrilling account of a hugely exciting season at the track. “Captivating. . . . Mr. Barich recaptures much of the feel and compass of his first narrative of the equine life, once again weaving a broad tartan from scores of interviews with inhabitants of every corner of the horseracing industry.” —The Wall Street Journal Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Sports Publishing imprint, is proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in sports—books about baseball, pro football, college football, pro and college basketball, hockey, or soccer, we have a book about your sport or your team.
