Into My Own: The Remarkable People and Events That Shaped a Life : Roger Kahn has often been called the Dean of American sports writers and the best baseball writer in the country. He has earned those encomiums as a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, columnist, and author. Now in his eighth decade, he has a story to tell - his own. In this touching chronicle, he explores his life and the people who influenced him. From his intellectual upbringing, to his inherent passion for baseball, he discusses the pivotal people whose relationships define his identity, as a person, a writer, father, and friend. Perhaps most touching is his account, straightforward but abrim with love, of the life and death of his scholar-athlete son, Roger Laurence Kahn. Amidst poignant anecdotes, lines of poetry, and family tragedy, Into My Own is a memorable account of Kahn's life amongst poets, writers, politicians, and most of all, ballplayers.
