So you've seen Harvard Beats Yale 29–29—the well-reviewed documentary film that chronicles the heartbreaking 1968 edition of The Game—but you're a glutton for punishment. What next? Now you can relive in even greater detail the awful day in which the Yale football team blew a 16-point lead in the final 42 seconds. On October 13, Overlook Press will release filmmaker Kevin Rafferty's oral history-style book, which includes much more from his interviews with the players who told the story on film. Most of the focus is on The Game itself, but you'll also find out what fullback Bob Levin ’69's teammates thought of his Vassar girlfriend—one Meryl Streep ’75MFA—and what quarterback Brian Dowling ’69 thought of his alter ego in Doonesbury.
