Official book description:

Award-winning sports writer Jane Leavy follows her New York Times runaway bestseller Sandy Koufax with the definitive biography of baseball icon Mickey Mantle. The legendary Hall-of-Fame outfielder was a national hero during his record-setting career with the New York Yankees, but public revelations of alcoholism, infidelity, and family strife badly tarnished the ballplayer's reputation in his latter years. In The Last Boy, Leavy plumbs the depths of the complex athlete, using copious first-hand research as well as her own memories, to show why The Mick remains the most beloved and misunderstood Yankee slugger of all time.

Home to Charles Dickens, Mark Twain, the Bronte sisters, and Martin Luther King, HarperCollins Publishers is one of the world’s leading English-language publishers. Founded by brothers James and John Harper in New York City in 1817 as J. and J. Harper, it was acquired in 1987 by News Corp. The worldwide book conglomerate was formed following News Corp’s acquisition of British publishers William Collins & Sons, publishing house to legendary authors Agatha Christie, J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis among others. With two centuries of experience, HarperCollins covers an array of genres, including literary and commercial fiction, business books, children’s books, cookbooks, mystery, romance and religious books. Today, HarperCollins is the first publisher to digitize its content and create a global digital warehouse.
