Meet the Author

Mitch  Albom
Mitch Albom
Mitch Albom introduced the wisdom of a man named Morrie with the moving account of the time he spent with him before his death, Tuesdays with Morrie -- a #1 bestseller that became nothing less than a phenomenon. Albom followed up the blockbuster success of Morrie with several novels that took his inspirational message to new -- and bestselling -- heights. He has also penned sports-oriented nonfiction, and his popular newspaper columns have been collected into anthologies.

Biography

You might call Mitch Albom a jock-of-all-trades. Before becoming one of America's most beloved sport commentators and columnists, Albom was an amateur boxer, a nightclub singer and pianist, and a stand-up comedian. He is a nationally syndicated fixture of radio and print, and has been featured as an analyst on ESPN. He has covered college football and college basketball in two successful nonfiction books, and the best of his articles have been collected in a series of anthologies called Live Albom. However, what catapulted Albom into the literary limelight was the mega-selling 1997 memoir, Tuesdays with Morrie, his first book to sidestep sports altogether..

Tuesdays... is a moving account of Albom's reconnection with his old Brandeis professor and college mentor, Morrie Schwartz. After learning Schwartz had been stricken with Lou Gehrig's disease, Albom sought him out in Boston, and throughout a long, harrowing year, they spent every Tuesday together. As he faced his inevitable death, Schwartz shared a lifetime of memories, regrets, fears, and philosophical insights with his former student. A story that could easily have toppled into maudlin sentimentality, the memoir succeeded in large part because of Albom's skillful writing. Published in 30 languages in 34 countries, the book remains an international bestseller.

In 2003, Albom forayed into fiction with The Five People You Meet in Heaven, the emotionally resonant story of an old man who dies, convinced his life has had no meaning -- only to discover that nothing could be further from the truth. It, too, scored a huge success for the author – as did his followup novel, For One Day More.

Good To Know

The Oprah Winfrey-produced version of Tuesdays with Morrie, starring Jack Lemmon and Hank Azaria, won 4 Emmy Awards and was the most-watched TV movie of 1999.

Before Albom was a household name, he was known on the comedy circuit as the warm-up act for Gabe "Welcome Back Kotter" Kaplan.

Albom is an enthusiastic philanthropist, having founded two charitable programs, the Dream Fund and A Time to Help.

    Journalistic Adventure

    Live Albom IV is a collection of news stories written by Mitch Albom from 1993 to 1995. Albom was voted America¿s number one sports columnist writer in the mid-90s. He writes about some of the biggest sport stories that happened around the country to small stories about local sporting events that were not covered by the national media. Albom writes a lot about the Fab Five, the ¿Bad Boy¿ Pistons, the 1994 Olympics, local sports heroes that not many of us have heard about and much more. Live Albom IV also offers some writings that were non-sports related. For instance, Albom wrote a special series for this book on the Secret World Series, the greatest fall classic never played. Albom also offers editorials on important national stories that we all have heard of. For instance there are writings about Rosa Parks, Prom expenses and Connie Chung. Live Albom IV offers a lot of insightful information on past sporting events. I recommend this book for those that like watching and reading about historical sporting events. I also recommend this book for potential writers everywhere. Albom is truly a great writer and can be a real inspiration for those that want to go into the field of journalism one day. If you are a fan of Albom¿s other books like Tuesdays With Morrie, The Five People You Meet In Heaven and Bo, then you will be a fan of this book as well. So go out and grab Live Albom IV, sit on the couch, open up a fresh Vernors, and enjoy your day.
