MARIS & MANTLE

America's Prodigal Son

What The New York Times praised as the definitive biography of baseball and pop culture icon Mickey Mantle by the acclaimed Sports Illustrated writer who knew The Mick personally, played golf with him often in their beloved Dallas and has authored a celebrated Mickey Mantle Quadrilogy that includes DiMag & MickMantle: The Best That Ever Was, and the newly released Maris & Mantle.

DiMag & Mick

In what Rolling Stone called "an epic The Natural meets The Rookie buddy drama," DiMag & Mick pulls back the curtain on the real, untold story of America's pop cultural legends in 1951 as an aging, ailing Joltin' Joe prepares to leave the superstar stage of New York City while The Mick struggles stepping into the hero's cleats at Yankee Stadium -- so raise the curtain on Broadway! 

The Best There Ever Was

AMERICA'S ORIGINAL HERO, THE MICK IS THE GREATEST * From Tony Castro, the New York Times bestselling author, comes this brilliant re-evaluation of Mickey Mantle -- of whom even Joe DiMaggio begrudgingly told the author: "to say there was anyone better in the game, to say there was anyone better than Mantle is what we Italians would call 'un sacco di stronzate,' a load of crap."

THE M&M BOYS

A PROFILE IN CIVILITY is how presidential historian Michael Beschloss described them more than half a century later, harkening back to a golden age in baseball and America that Roger Maris and Mickey Mantle helped define every bit as much as John F. Kennedy.

Nobody writes better about Mickey Mantle than Tony Castro. Nobody.

Peter Golenbock

Tony Castro paints Mickey Mantle with the pinstripe magic of García Márquez phantasmagoria and realism...

Tom Wolfe

Brilliant... a valuable contribution to the understanding of our time..
