“The acclaimed author of the New York Times bestseller Sandy Koufax returns with the biography of one of baseball’s greatest and most complex legends, Yankee outfielder Mickey Mantle. Meticulously reported and elegantly written, The Last Boy weaves together the author’s own memories of Mantle with stories and reminiscences from on and off the field of a man who led the Yankees to seven world championships, was voted the American League’s Most Valuable Player three times, won the Triple Crown in 1956, and duelled teammate Roger Maris in a thrilling 1961 chase for the single season home-run record—all while battling crippling injuries and a lifelong drinking problem.”
