AUTHOR

SUMMARY

Much like author James T. Farrell, Mickey Donovan--the main character in Dreaming Baseball--grew up on the South Side of Chicago dreaming of becoming a star for the White Sox. Donovan's childhood dream came true in 1919 when he made the team. Despite the fact that he spent most of his rookie season on the bench, it was truly a magical year--until the Black Sox scandal turned it into a nightmare. James T. Farrell dreamed of one day playing second base for his hometown Chicago White Sox, but, failing that, he became one of America's great novelists. Farrell loved the game of baseball with the same passion he brought to the celebrated Studs Lonigan trilogy. In the 1950s Farrell signed an agreement with A. S. Barnes to write two baseball books. The first book published from this deal was My Baseball Diary, in 1957, still considered one of the very best fan books on baseball. The second baseball book was to be a novel about the infamous 1919 Black Sox scandal. Though several drafts of the novel were written, it remained unpublished--until now. Editors Ron Briley, Margaret Davidson, and James Barbour worked with the various manuscript drafts to see Farrell's vision to print as Dreaming Baseball. Farrell's Donovan speaks, feels, and dreams for all baseball fans in this wonderfully rich novel about our favorite American pastime.Farrell, James T. is the author of 'Dreaming Baseball ', published 2007 under ISBN 9780873388979 and ISBN 0873388976.
