Sobre l'autor

Ringgold Wilmer Lardner was born on March 6, 1885 in Niles, Mich. His unusual first name came from the Civil War Union admiral Cadwallader Ringgold, but he disliked his name and shortened it to Ring. Although he came to journalism somewhat by chance, taking a position that had originally been mostra'n més offered to his brother, Lardner soon found his niche, writing first about sports, particularly baseball, and later a humor column. Lardner worked as a sportswriter for several papers, including the Chicago American, the Boston American, and The Chicago Tribune. Eventually he began to write short stories, and today he is best known for his stories about baseball, and in particular You Know Me Al, a series of letters from Jack Keefe, a fictional baseball star, to his hometown friend, Al. The letters first appeared in The Saturday Evening Post in 1914, and then were published in book form in 1916. Other short-story collections include Round Up, The Busher Returns, Gullible's Travels, and First and Last. Lardner also wrote one novel, The Big Town, and collaborated with George S. Kaufman on the play June Moon, which opened on Broadway in 1929 and was filmed a year later. Ring Lardner died in East Hampton, Long Island, N.Y. in 1933. Lardner's son, Ring Lardner, Jr., is also a writer whose credits include the screenplay for the movie M*A*S*H. (Bowker Author Biography) mostra'n menys

Not much here. One sided exchange of letters from a nineteen-teens ballplayer.

I was ready to be done with him by the end, I hope he did make the trip overseas. and don't much care if he came back to baby Al.

FROM AMAZON: You Know Me, Al is a classic of baseball, the game and the community. Jack Keefe, one of literature's great characters, is talented, brash, and conceited. Self-assured and imperceptive, impervious to both advice and sarcasm, Keefe rises to the heights, but his inability to learn makes for his undoing. Through a series of letters from this bush-league pitcher to his not-quite-anonymous friend Al, Lardner maintains a balance between the funny and the moving, the pathetic and the glorious.
Nostalgic in its view of pre-World War I America, a time before the "live" ball, a time filled with names like Ty Cobb, Walter Johnson, and Eddie Cicotte, this is not a simple period piece. It is about competition, about the ability to reason, and most of all it is about being human.

Like a Dana Carvey character in a recurring SNL sketch, Jack Keefe quickly wears out his welcome. The ignorance, the gullibility, the illiteracy, and the Berra-like malapropisms are entertaining for about the first chapter.

I had hopes that this would be a sort of What Did You Do During The War, Daddy? tale; instead it is just pointless buffoonery.
