Joe DiMaggio
Joe DiMaggio: The Hero's Life Joe DiMaggio: The Hero's Life by Richard Ben Cramer
In the hard-knuckled thirties, he was the immigrants' boy who made it big. As World War II loomed, Joltin' Joe became our poster boy for American can-do, with his hitting streak of fifty-six straight, the nation was literally singing his name. In postwar ease and plenty, he was our Broadway Joe, the icon of elegance and manly class...until he wooed and won, in Marilyn Monroe, the most beautiful girl that America could dream up. Joe DiMaggio was a mirror of our best self...and he was also the loneliest hero we ever had. In this groundbreaking biography, Richard Ben Cramer presents a stunning, often shocking portrait of the hero nobody knew. It is a story that sweeps through the twentieth century, bringing to light along the way not just America's national game, but her movie stars, mobsters, pols, writers...the birth (and the price) of modern national celebrity.
