Set in the suburbs of New York in the 1950s, Wait Till Next Year is Doris Kearns Goodwin's touching memoir of growing up in love with her family and baseball. She re-creates the postwar era, when the corner store was a place to share stories and neighborhoods were equally divided between Dodger, Giant, and Yankee fans. We meet the people who most influenced Goodwin's early life: her mother, who taught her the joy of books but whose debilitating illness left her housebound: and her father, who taught her the joy of baseball and to root for the Dodgers of Jackie Robinson, Roy Campanella, Pee Wee Reese, Duke Snider, and Gil Hodges. Most important, Goodwin describes with eloquence how the Dodgers' leaving Brooklyn in 1957, and the death of her mother soon after, marked both the end of an era and, for her, the end of childhood.

A fine evocation of a recent but long ago era , when Booklyn was the Dodgers. A lovely nostalgic look at Americana of the mid 20th century. Doris Kearns is a clever writer and the book reads more like a novel than history. One not need to be a baseball fan, a Brooklynite, or old fogey (all of which ...
For those of us of a "certain age", aka those who grew up in the 50's and 60's, this is a great read. Exceptionally well written, Wait Till Next Year weaves the frustration of the Dodgers and their fans into the the angst of growing up.
Don't miss this great book.
