Roger Kahn is, as a Washington Post reviewer noted, is "not only a great baseball writer, but also something rarer: a great writer whose subject happens to be baseball." In Rickey & Robinson, the now octogenarian author of The Boys of Summer offers a revelatory account of the story behind the told and retold myth of major league baseball's integration. To grasp the actual event, this veteran sportswriter draws on reminiscences and previously entries from his own notebooks of the period that he had discreetly suppressed at the time. Certain to be reviewed and savored.
