The challenge of this book is to explain how, in the face of such record failure, the Cubs still inspire more joy than angst, more pleasant memories than pain. They are baseball’s last unsolved mystery, the final conundrum, a historical enigma, baseball’s oldest story, with Cited by: 1.

One of the most popular Chicago Cubs of all time, and now an executive adviser for the team, Billy Williams reminisces about his early years, his Hall of Fame career, and his five decades in the game in this self-titled autobiography/5(15).

I have mixed feelings about this book. On the one hand, the stories and photos provide a memento of the Cubs finally winning the World Series; on the other, the text of those stories is atrociously edited. The book is largely reprints of Daily Herald stories published during the season, and they contain far too many editing mistakes/5(53).

Anyway, “The Cubs Way,” Verducci’s new work, is a page book that aims to be the definitive account of the Cubs journey to the World Series title. In large part, it is the journey of general manager Theo Epstein and field manager Joe Maddon. There is a reason for this/5. Williwaw (novel) Williwaw is the debut novel of Gore Vidal, written when he was 19 and first mate of a U.S.

Army supply ship stationed in the Aleutian Islands. The story combines war drama, maritime adventure and a murder plot.

This time, though, they find trouble. The Chicago Tribune Book of the Chicago Cubs is a decade-by-decade look at one of baseball’s most beloved if hard-luck teams, starting with the franchise’s beginnings in as the Chicago White Stockings and ending with the triumphant World Series championship/5(41).

The Cubs do not win,” he explained, “and because of that, a Cubs fan will have a diminished life determined by low expectations. That team will screw up your life.” Cohen became not just a Cubs fan but one of the biggest Cubs fans in the world.

In this book, he captures the story of the team, its players and crazy days/5(90). Vidal wrote this novel under the influence of Stephen Crane and Ernest Hemingway.

It was once published under the title, Dangerous Voyage, an inferior title, to be sure. It was one of the first of many-to-come WWII novels; published Williwaw is Gore Vidal's first /5.

A gripping tale of men struggling against nature and themselves, Williwaw was Gore Vidal's first novel, written at nineteen when he was first mate of the U.S. Army freight supply ship stationed in 4/5(4).
