Revue de presse :

Christopher Lehmann-Haupt The New York Times Ms. Goodwin has...made familiar events seem fresh again, as if they were happening for the first time only a couple of days ago.

“Lively, tender, and . . . hilarious . . . [Goodwin’s] memoir is uplifting evidence that the American dream still exists—not so much in the content of the dream as in the tireless, daunting dreaming.” —Jodi Daynard, The Boston Globe

“A poignant memoir . . . marvelous . . . Goodwin shifts gracefully between a Child’s recollection and an adult¹s overview.” —Peter Delacorte, San Francisco Chronicle Book Review

Robert Finn The Plain Dealer Skillful, entertaining, and just plain interesting...Like the best pianists, Goodwin makes the difficult seem easy because she is a fluent technician.

“As the tenured radicals attempt to rewrite our nation’s history, the warm, witty, eloquent personal testimony of someone of Doris Kearns Goodwin’s stature is well worth reading.” —Maggie Gallagher , The Baltimore Sun

Présentation de l'éditeur :

By the award-winning author of Team of Rivals and The Bully Pulpit, Wait Till Next Year is Doris Kearns Goodwin’s touching memoir of growing up in love with her family and baseball.

Set in the suburbs of New York in the 1950s, Wait Till Next Year 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.

Description du livre Simon & Schuster. 1 Paperback(s), 1997. soft. État : New. Set in the suburbs of New York in the 1950s, this is Doris Kearns Goodwin's touching memoir of growing up loving both her family and baseball. The Pulitzer Prize–winning author of No Ordinary Time and Team of Rivals, as well as a contributor to Ken Burns's documentary Baseball, Goodwin re-creates the postwar era, when the corner store was a place to share stories and neighborhoods were equally divided between Dodgers, Giants, and Yankees fans. We meet the people who most influenced Goodwin's early life: her mother, who taught her the joy of books, and her father, who taught her the joy of baseball, and to root for Jackie Robinson, Roy Campanella, and Pee Wee Reese. "When historian Goodwin was six years old, her father taught her how to keep score for 'their' team, the Brooklyn Dodgers. While this activity forged a lifelong bond between father and daughter, her mother formed an equally strong relationship with her through the shared love of reading. Goodwin recounts some wonderful stories in this coming-of-age tale about both her family and an era when baseball truly was the national pastime that brought whole communities together. Between games and seasons, Goodwin relates the impact of pivotal historical events, such as the Rosenberg trial. Her end of innocence follows with the destruction of Ebbets Field, her mother's death, and her father's lapse into despair. Goodwin gives listeners reason to consider what each of us has retained of our childhood passions. A poignant but unsentimental journey for all adults and, of course, especially for baseball fans."—Library Journal 270. N° de réf. du libraire 71144
