A Wonderful Life But Not a Wonderful Book

I read Larry Thornberry’s review of George Vecsey’s biography of Stan “The Man” Musial this morning which was originally published in the July/August edition of TAS.

Thornberry is far kinder to Vecsey than I was when I reviewed the book back in June. I disagreed with Vecsey’s premise that Musial had been overshadowed by Joe DiMaggio and Ted Williams nor was I pleased with Vecsey’s injection of politics where it had no place.

However, Thornberry does draw our attention to another recent Musial biography written by Wayne Stewart titled simply Stan the Man. I haven’t read Stewart’s book but I can only hope he does greater justice with his subject than Vecsey did.

Stan Musial has had a wonderful life. It is a shame that Vecsey couldn’t make a wonderful book out of it.
