TCL Call Number: BIO Goodwin D
Diana's rating: 4 stars

Pulitzer-winning historian Goodwin tells the story of her own
childhood, in 1950s Long Island, which at the time was a melting
pot of the five boroughs of New York City. Battle lines were drawn
each baseball season, pitting neighbor vs. neighbor according to one's home borough's baseball team loyalty -- the Kearns were Dodgers fans, especially father and daughter. Her tale is a poignant one, as her mother suffered a long illness, and the Dodgers weren't always victorious, hence the title.
