    Acclaimed baseball writer Roger Kahn gives us a memoir of his Brooklyn childhood, a recollection of a life in journalism, and a record of personal acquaintance with the greatest ballplayers of several eras. His father had a passion for the Dodgers; his mother’s passion was for poetry. Somehow, young Roger managed to blend both loves in a career that encompassed writing about sports for the New York Herald Tribune, Sports Illustrated, the Saturday Evening Post, Esquire, and Time.

    If you could sum up Memories of Summer in three words, what would they be?

    I will add more when I finish the book.


    How could the performance have been better?

    C'mon... teach the reader how to pronounce names CORRECTLY! It's Leo Durocher not Durricher!!!! He was one of the greatest managers in baseball history. It is really sloppy not to be able to pronounce the names of real people correctly. I expect a higher standard from Audible. Roger Kahn is a remarkable writer and voice of the game of baseball, and deserves MUCH better.


    Any additional comments?

    Roger Kahn is one of my favorite authors, and one of America's best!
