For celebrated sportwriter Peter Golenbock, Wrigleyville is a symbol of America's fidelity to its greatest sport. As he did with classics of sports literature, Bums (a history of the Brooklyn Dodgers) and Dynasty (a history of the New York Yankees), Golenbock turns to a team that has won and broken the hearts of generations of fans; the Chicago Cubs. Utilizing dozens of personal interviews with players, coaches, fans, sportswriters, and clubhouse personnel, as well as out-of-print memiors by nineteeth-century players, Peter Golenbock has created a perfect gift for every baseball fan: a book that entertains, warms the heart, and touches the soul. This updated edition includes material from the team's past five years, such as Harry Caray's death, the magical seasons of Sammy Sosa and Kerry Wood, and the Cubs' 1998 playoff dive.

Praise for Wrigleyville

"Appealing and insightful, cut...from the cloth of memory and rewoved with a sense of living voice...Golenbock is a master of old mystiques." --Chicago Tribune

"Fascinating..In addition to the rich anecdotal material that fills this [book], there are some great deja vu lessons in both baseball and social history...The famous baseball author has done it again." --The Christian Science Monitor
