"Revealing . . . memorable . . . reminiscences about the most beloved baseball team of all time."—The New York Times
"An era is brought to life with remarkable, consistent passion."—Newsweek
"Golenbock gathers stories of a team, a park, and an era gone by in Bums. Few teams experienced more greatness or more heartbreak, which makes the book worthwhile for an audience wider than just New Yorkers or just National League fans."—Cleveland Plain-Dealer
Before heading west in 1957, the Brooklyn Dodgers were among baseball's most beloved and colorful teams. It's been over fifty years since they moved to Los Angeles, but they remain ingrained in the fabric of our national pastime. In this oral history of "dem bums," bestselling author Peter Golenbock tells the team's tale through the recollections of former players, writers, front-office executives, and faithful fans.
In their own words, Dodger legends such as Pee Wee Reese, Leo Durocher, Duke Snider, Roy Campanella, Ralph Branca, and other greats recall the club's ups and downs. Brooklyn fans and other baseball enthusiasts will savor these warmly nostalgic accounts, which range from reminiscences of the magic of Ebbets Field to tales of Jackie Robinson's historic debut, The Shot Heard Round the World, the triumphant 1955 season, and the ultimate betrayal by a certain Walter O'Malley. Sixteen pages of vintage photographs complement the text.
