About this item

A poignant portrayal of professional ballplayers' lives on and off the field during the sport's golden years in the 1950's.

Henry Wiggen, hero of "The Southpaw" and the best-known fictional baseball player in America, is back again, throwing a baseball "with his arm and his brain and his memory and his bluff for the sake of his pocket and his family." More than a novel about baseball, "Bang the Drum Slowly" is about the friendship and the lives of a group of men as they each learn that a teammate is dying of cancer."" "Bang the Drum Slowly" was chosen as one of the top one hundred sports books of all time by "Sports Illustrated" and appears on numerous other lists of best baseball fiction. In the introduction to this new Bison Books edition Mark Harris discusses the making of the classic 1973 film starring Robert DeNiro, based on his screen adaptation of the book. Also available in Bison Books editions are "The Southpaw," "It Looked Like For Ever."
