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 do help) to enjoy this fine effort. Highly recommended.
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.
