*"Maraniss does an extraordinary job of recording thismemorable life in black-and-white photographs and fluid, compelling writing that is bothbiography and de facto history of gay rights and the depredations of homophobia." --Booklist (starred review)

"A compelling narrative . . . This is a meticulously researched history of the ways queer culture in the '70s intersected with baseball, Blackness, and larger culture wars, with one man at their center." --Kirkus Reviews
