Description
 
Richard Ben Cramer (au). Baseball hero Joe DiMaggio was, at every turn, one man we could look at who made us feel good. In the hard-knuckled 30s, he was the immigrant boy who made it big -- & spurred the N.Y. Yankees to a new era of dynasty. He was Broadway Joe, the icon of elegance, the man who wooed & won Marilyn Monroe -- the most beautiful girl America could dream up. Joe DiMaggio was a mirror of our best self. And he was also the loneliest hero we ever had. Here is a shocking portrait of a complicated, enigmatic life. The story that DiMaggio never wanted told, tells of his grace -- & greed; his dignity, pride -- & hidden shame. It is a story that brings to light not just America’s national game, but the birth (& the price) of modern national celebrity. B&W photos.
