Roger Kahn is Always A Treat to Read 7 mars 2005
Par Bill Emblom - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I have never read a book by Roger Kahn that was less than five stars. This volume is a collection of Kahn's work from books and magazine articles from his illustrious career. Roger covered the Brooklyn Dodgers during the seasons of 1952 and 1953 which led to The Boys of Summer. The book is divided into sections with chapters devoted to athletes, mainly baseball players, that have been subjects of Kahn's work over the past several decades. The last chapter is a tribute to former Dodgers' outfielder Carl Furillo, The Reading Rifle. It is absolutely first rate. Some of the other sections of the book are devoted to New York's centerfielders of the 1950's, hitters and pitchers, fighters such as Dempsey and Ali, in addition to Billy vs. Reggie, and George M. Steinbrenner. A very touching section is entitled "Heroes Off the Field" in which chapters are devoted to Jackie Robinson, Roberto Clemente, Ring Lardner, and Pee Wee Reese. Another memorable section is devoted to "On Getting Old" with chapters on Robert Frost, Stan Musial (old as a ballplayer), sportswriters, and the previously mentioned Carl Furillo. I did find one minor error in the Introduction written by Rob Miraldi when he said "he (Kahn) was sent to cover the crosstown Giants in the Bronx" after covering the Dodgers in 1952 and 1953. The Giants as Miraldi knows played in the Polo Grounds which was located on the island of Manhattan. If you have enjoyed Roger Kahn's previous books you won't want to miss this one, especially if you are a baseball fan. This isn't a book to be read by a speed reader. This is a book to be savored.

Reading is Fundamental 27 juillet 2005
Par Bob Fitzsimmons - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
To the reviewer below who commented that this book is a retread and not the book he thought he was buying, I refer that reviewer to the subtitle of the book: The Very Best of Roger Kahn. This subtitle makes is very clear that this book is an anthology and not a new work. If, somehow, that doesn't make it entirely clear, a cursory scan of the book jacket's flaps and back cover would do so. It's an anthology, buddy. No need to disparage a great book because you didn't pay enough attention to look at what you were buying.

Furthermore, it's an excellent anthology. Many of the selections included haven't seen print in 40+ years. There are pieces here from magazines and newspapers that no longer exist, so even though every piece in the anthology (other than the prologue and introduction) have been previously published, many of them have never been seen by readers under 60. In this way, the anthology is revealing the great works of this masterful writer to a whole new generation of readers and fans.

If you like great baseball writing and enjoyed The Boys of Summer, I guarantee that you will enjoy this anthology.

Nice collection from a great writer 18 juin 2006
Par K.A.Goldberg - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This is a moving collection of sportswriter Roger Kahn's writing over the last half century. There's information on the old Brooklyn Dodgers, of course, including Jackie Robinson, Carl Furillo, Pee Wee Reese, and Duke Snider. We also enjoy several looks at baseball stars from other teams (Mays, Maris, Aaron, Rose), and, of course, a moving tribute to the author's baseball-fan father. The book is mostly about baseball, but there are essays on other sports, Jewish culture, and 1960's campus rebellion. Aficionados may have read many of these essays before - but all are worth reading again. I just wish there was more here - Kahn is such a readable and moving wordsmith.

Fifty Years of the Best Writing 21 avril 2005
Par John Matlock - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Best known for "The Boys of Summer," Roger Kahn spent half a century writing on baseball and much more. This book is a collection of his essays, mostly on baseball and its players, but fifty years of writing is a lot of writing. Here are his writing on many, many other people, other activities. Still, this is Roger Kahn, even the baseball stories make you remember that baseball players are still people.

The short (5 page) Chapter 17 is on Joe DiMaggio's marriage to Marilyn Monroe. It brings a great sadness. This kind of reaching for the emotions is a thing that Roger Kahn does better than just about anyone else. He is able to look beyond the superstar personna to the peson underneath and then to bring this person to life using just the printed word.

The really good thing about books like this is that they mean that the words printed in a newspaper that will be thrown away the next day remain available. This is a supurb book, writing at its best.

Almost as good as The Boys of summer 27 mars 2005
Par Wyochipster - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Saying this book is almost as good as Kahn's "Boys of Summer" really means that "The Boys" batted 407, and "Beyond the Boys" batted 406.

Wonderful, unbeatable prose, great stories told by one of the masters of baseball writing. It belongs on every baseball fan's bookshelf. Don't miss it.
