Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Boys of Summer recreates the magic of Dodger baseball as played in Ebbets Field during that brief dream when Brooklyn was the center of the universe. Robinson, Snider, Reese, Furillo, Campanella, and the rest tell Roger Kahn how it was raising hopes every year only to fall before the mighty pinstripes . . . until that unforgettable year ('55) when it all came together. At the same time Kahn masterfully interweaves the story of his own youth, from early fandom to young reporterhood, traveling with and writing about his childhood idols.
