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 ...

Joseph O

BrooklYn & Baseballl

by Joseph O on Dec 29, 2011

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.

a walk down memory lane

by Susanrose on Jun 16, 2011

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.
