Book Reviews & Awards

“Through the years I have heard from countless Mickey Mantle fans from virtually every walk of life. But until now, never a ballerina. Roni Mahler’s memoir is written with the same grace she brought to the stage and includes fond memories of the grace the young Mantle brought to center field at her beloved Yankee Stadium.”—Bob Costas
