Taking Geoffrey Chaucer's Canterbury Tales as his version, Dinin has created characters who narrate their semifictionalized tales—by turns reverent, bawdy, and humorous—to enlighten readers approximately this adored institution.

So the tale starts off. On a wintry evening in Durham, North Carolina, writes Dinin, twelve scholars huddle lower than the meager safeguard of a nylon tent. they've got little in universal other than the sacrosanct culture that has introduced them jointly for the prior month. ahead of the sunlight subsequent units, they'll anoint themselves in blue and white paint and input close by Cameron Indoor Stadium to worship on the altar of Blue Devils basketball. meanwhile, they abide in Krzyzewskiville.

A stranger enters the tent, a revered sportswriter, and means that the tenters cross the hours until eventually the following tent money by means of telling tales of Krzyzewskiville. Like Chaucer’s pilgrims, the scholars compete to inform the easiest story. They record on ribald camping out exploits, relate a dream within which Duke basketball gamers and coaches try out a fan’s loyalty, debate the rationality of camping out as a fashion of allocating scholars’ tickets, and describe the spontaneous tent urban that sprang up one summer time whilst their cherished “Coach ok” was once provided a role in different places. This storytelling pageant creates a loving portrait of the advanced principles and tribal customs that make up the wealthy neighborhood and constant lovers which are Krzyzewskiville.

Mickie Krzyzewski, trainer K’s spouse and a well-recognized courtside determine at Duke basketball video games, has contributed a foreword praising the “love, dedication, and possession” of the voters of Krzyzewskiville.
