By the award-winning author of Team of Rivals and The Bully Pulpit, Wait Till Next Year is Doris Kearns Goodwin’s touching memoir of growing up in love with her family and baseball. Set in the suburbs of New York in the 1950s, Wait Till Next Year 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.

Wait tell Next Year is the inside story of one of the most dramatic personalities of our time and a re-creation of many of the most exciting moments in modern baseball. If nothing else had counted but hits, runs and errors, Jackie Robinson wouldn't have had many problems during his years as a major figure in the sports world. But his great ability as a player was often over-shadowed by the fact that he was the first Negro in major league baseball. He was - and still is - a man of burning pride and, above all, courage. He is a man who plays to win, on and off the baseball diamond. Jackie Robinson was born in a share-croppers cabin in Georgia. He first won national fame as a college and basketball star at U.C.L.A. And later played in the Negro Baseball leagues. Then, at twenty-six backed by Branch Ricky's tough support, he joined the Brooklyn Dodgers organization. During his controversial record-breaking years with the Dodgers - and the important years since his retirement from baseball in 1956 - he has fought constantly for Negro equality and an end to racial antagonism and discrimination. WAIT TILL NEXT YEAR then is much more than a narrative of Jackie Robinson's brilliant sports career. The whole story is here, including the problems that confronted his mother and his wife and children, and the dramatic scenes when Robinson refused to submit to prejudice in the Army, in housing for his family, in baseball training camps. Robinson himself describes for the reader some of these crisis in life, and his wife speaks of the events which especially affected her. Carl Rowan one of the country's finest reporters has written this biography of a great athlete with warmth, sympathy and full awareness of its value as a spirited American document.
