Joe DiMaggio: The Hero's Life
by Richard Ben Cramer
In a stunning feat of meticulous reportage, Pulitzer Prize winner Richard Ben Cramer ultimately puts to rest the "Where have you gone, Joe DiMaggio?" question with iconoclastic bravura. In Cramer's evaluation, the hero America held onto so desperately for so long was really a creation of a nation's communal imagination. The Joe DiMaggio that America tried so hard to believe in was never really here at all.

There was, of course, a Joe DiMaggio, and he had a splendid career in Yankee pinstripes--once hitting safely in an unimaginable 56 consecutive games--and a troubled marriage with Marilyn Monroe, each augmenting the other in our national mythology.

Joe Dimaggio : The Yankee Clipper
by Beckett Publications
The most elegant Yankee of them all, DiMaggio's been baseball's virtual bridge between the era of myth and the dawn of the 21st century. As a ballplayer, his magical feats speak for themselves; as a man, he's defined by an aloofness that only cements his legend. DiMaggio doesn't set out to tell the complexity of DiMaggio's story; it is more of an affectionate scrapbook crammed with commemorative photos and celebratory prose.

The pictures extend from his minor-league days with the San Francisco Seals through his Yankee years of glory and military service, his marriage to Marilyn Monroe, and his postbaseball status as both icon and eminence grise. The accompanying essays are quite good, particularly Dwight Chapin on DiMaggio's Seals' career, Harold Rosenthal on his arrival in New York, Leonard Koppett on his All-Star Game appearances, and Marty Noble on DiMaggio's status as linchpin in the chain of Yankee excellence. Memorabilia buffs should relish the section on DiMaggio collectibles. Baseball buffs will relish the rest. --Jeff Silverman -
