Satchel : the life and times of an American legend by Larry Tye( Book )

4 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 1,888 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

He is that rare American icon who has never been captured in a biography worthy of him. Now, at last, here is the story of athlete, showman, philosopher, and boundary breaker Leroy "Satchel" Paige. Through dogged detective work, journalist Larry Tye has tracked down the truth about this enigmatic pitcher, interviewing Negro Leaguers and Major Leaguers, talking to family and friends who had never told their stories, and retracing Paige's steps to separate the truth from the myth Paige himself created. Here is the child born to an Alabama washerwoman with twelve young mouths to feed, the young man who took up baseball on the streets, inventing his trademark hesitation pitch while throwing bricks at rival gang members. Tye shows Paige growing into the superstar hurler of the Negro Leagues, establishing records that still stand, then emerging at age 42 to help propel the Cleveland Indians to the World Series.--From publisher description

Bobby Kennedy : the making of a liberal icon by Larry Tye( Recording )

History remembers Robert F. Kennedy as a racial healer, a tribune for the poor, and the last progressive knight. But Kennedy - nurtured on the rightist orthodoxies of his dynasty-building father - started his public life as counsel to the left-baiting, table-thumping Senator Joseph McCarthy. Remembered now as a rare optimist in an age of political cynicism, RFK's profoundly moving journey from cold warrior to hot-blooded liberal also offers a lens into two of the most chaotic and confounding decades of twentieth century America

Superman A Biography by Larry Tye( Recording )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Seventy-five years after he came to life, Superman remains one of America's most adored and enduring heroes. Now Larry Tye, the prize-winning journalist and New York Times bestselling author of Satchel, has written the first full-fledged history not just of the Man of Steel but of the creators, designers, owners, and performers who made him the icon he is today. Legions of fans from Boston to Buenos Aires can recite the story of the child born Kal-El, scion of the doomed planet Krypton, who was rocketed to Earth as an infant, raised by humble Kansas farmers, and rechristened Clark Kent. Known to law-abiders and evildoers alike as Superman, he was destined to become the invincible champion of all that is good and just?and a star in every medium from comic books and comic strips to radio, TV, and film. But behind the high-flying legend lies a true-to-life saga every bit as compelling, one that begins not in the far reaches of outer space but in the middle of America's heartland. During the depths of the Great Depression, Jerry Siegel was a shy, awkward teenager in Cleveland. Raised on adventure tales and robbed of his father at a young age, Jerry dreamed of a hero for a boy and a world that desperately needed one. Together with neighborhood chum and kindred spirit Joe Shuster, young Siegel conjured a human-sized god who was everything his creators yearned to be: handsome, stalwart, and brave, able to protect the innocent, punish the wicked, save the day, and win the girl. It was on Superman's muscle-bound back that the comic book and the very idea of the superhero took flight. Tye chronicles the adventures of the men and women who kept Siegel and Shuster's "Man of Tomorrow" aloft and vitally alive through seven decades and counting. Here are the savvy publishers and visionary writers and artists of comics' Golden Age who ushered the red-and-blue-clad titan through changing eras and evolving incarnations; and the actors?including George Reeves and Christopher Reeve?who brought the Man of Steel to life on screen, only to succumb themselves to all-too-human tragedy in the mortal world. Here too is the poignant and compelling history of Siegel and Shuster's lifelong struggle for the recognition and rewards rightly due to the architects of a genuine cultural phenomenon. From two-fisted crimebuster to ?ber-patriot, social crusader to spiritual savior, Superman?perhaps like no other mythical character before or since?has evolved in a way that offers a Rorschach test of his times and our aspirations. In this deftly realized appreciation, Larry Tye reveals a portrait of America over seventy years through the lens of that otherworldly hero who continues to embody our best selves. Praise for Superman "Engaging, fun, inspiring?like the Man of Steel."?The Huffington Post "Powerful . . . wonderfully readable."? The Plain Dealer "A story as American as Superman himself . . . The best origin story pulsing through Superman is not the one about the Krypton-to-Kansas alien baby, but rather the one about the superhero's mortal and sometimes star-crossed creators."? The Washington Post "Fun, enlightening pop-cultural history."? Kirkus Reviews "A rich history full of lively heroes and villains? much like a comic book. Essential for Superman fans." ?Library Journal (starred review) "[A] comprehensive, definitive history." ?Publishers Weekly From the Hardcover edition
