Into My Own: The Remarkable People and Events that Shaped a Life by Roger Kahn

Roger Kahn is one of America's foremost sportswriters. After successful seasons as a newspaperman and magazine writer, he burst onto the national scene in 1972 with his memorable bestseller, THE BOYS OF SUMMER, memorializing the Brooklyn Dodgers. Now in his eighth decade, Kahn has again written a book for the hearts and minds of his readers. Chronicling his own life, INTO MY OWN is Kahn's reflection on the eight people who shaped him as a man, a father, and a writer.

INTO MY OWN is the touching memoir of an unassuming man, whose great love of baseball and literature led him into extraordinary experiences, opportunities, and friendships. Even amidst great family tragedy and personal difficulty, Kahn has prevailed—amongst poets, writers, politicians, and most of all, ballplayers.

Praise for Roger Kahn:

"As a kid, I loved sports first and writing second, and loved everything Roger Kahn wrote. As an adult, I love writing first and sports second, and love Roger Kahn even more." —Pulitzer Prize winner, David Maraniss

"He can epitomize a player with a single swing of the pen." —TIME magazine

"Roger Kahn is the best baseball writer in the business." —Stephen Jay Gould, New York Review of Books

"A work of high moral purpose and great poetic accomplishment. The finest American book on sports." —James Michener on THE BOYS OF SUMMER

"Kahn has the almost unfair gift of easy, graceful writing." —BOSTON HERALD
