Writer and journalist George Plimpton (1927-2003) lived many adventures, pushing the boundaries of his life, which could have likely hovered at a desk, fed only by imagination. Whether in sports, entertainment or politics, the participatory journalist competed, performed, failed and even gave stump speeches as he ventured to reveal the lives of true heroic figures.
