11 editions published between 1984 and 2012 in English and Japanese and held by 615 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A collection of classic columns from one of New York's most celebrated journalists Although his career spans decades, the seven years that Jimmy Breslin spent at the New York Daily News sparked some of his finest work. When New York City tumbled into economic and social chaos at the end of the 1970s, Breslin was there. In his brief, insightful columns, he looked at the city not from the top down but from the bottom up. Eschewing the view of politicians, socialites, and captains of industry, Breslin's heroes are men like Jim Moran, the cop who drove John Lennon to the emergency room after he was shot, or Barney Baker, an ex-boxer who served as bodyguard to mobster Meyer Lansky. These are average people who see big things, and Breslin is their herald.

9 editions published between 1963 and 2012 in English and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jimmy Breslin's nostalgic, rollicking look back at the worst baseball team in history Five years after the Dodgers and Giants fled New York for California, the city's National League fans were offered salvation in the shape of the New York Mets: an expansion team who, in the spring of 1962, attempted to play something resembling the sport of baseball. Helmed by the sagacious Casey Stengel and staffed by the league's detritus, the new Mets played 162 games and lost 120 of them, making them statistically the worst team in the sport's modern history. It's possible they were even worse than that. Starring such legends as Marvin Throneberry--a first baseman so inept that his nickname had to be?Marvelous????????the Mets lost with swashbuckling panache. In an era when the fun seemed to have gone out of sports, the Mets came to life in a blaze of delightful, awe-inspiring ineptitude. They may have been losers, but a team this awful deserves to be remembered as legends.

"Welcome to the Okefenokee Swamp where you're apt to meet someone you know, someone you want to know and at least a few you'll quote to your dying day. Walt Kelly launched the Pogo newspaper strip in 1948 and after but three years, his cartooning brethren awarded him their highest honor, the Reuben Award. A good chunk of that three years is contained in this book. It's the first volume of the long-desired complete reprinting of every daily Pogo strip in black and white and for the first time, every Sunday page in full color ... plus, there are many large scans from the original art showing Kelly's beautiful brush line. The book is designed by and produced under the watchful supervision of Walt's daughter, Carolyn Kelly. Here's Walt Kelly's Pogo ... a very high watermark in the history of the funny pages."--Page [4] of jacket
Sunny Jim : the life of America's most beloved horseman, James Fitzsimmons by Jimmy Breslin( Book )

5 editions published between 1962 and 2012 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An evocative portrait of a man who lived a lifetime at the trackAt seventy-seven, James "Sunny Jim" Fitzsimmons should have been considering retirement. His six-decade career stretched back to 1885, when, as an eleven year-old, he began working as a stable boy. After failing as a jockey, Fitzsimmons-or Mr. Fitz to those in the know-started training horses, eventually winning three Kentucky Derbys, two Triple Crowns, and more than two thousand races. But by 1951, glory seemed to be behind him. His wife's sudden death took the light from his eyes, and retirement loomed. And then he met Nashua. She was the kind of horse trainers dream of. Big, powerful, with a windpipe that could suck down enough air to keep her running for weeks. Mr. Fitz knew he had a winner. It was only a matter of time before he realized that he had also just met the most remarkable horse of his long, storied career.
