"A poignant memoir . . . marvelous . . . Goodwin shifts gracefully between a Child's recollection and an adult s overview." --Peter Delacorte, San Francisco Chronicle Book Review "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 "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 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. 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.

Reseña del editor:

Set in the suburbs of New York in the 1950s, "Wait Till Next Year" is Doris Kearns Goodwin's touching memoir of growing up in love with her family and baseball. 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 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.
