In THE BIG FELLA, acclaimed biographer Jane Leavy recreates Babe Ruth’s 21-day victory lap across America after hitting his 60th home run in September 1967, and in doing so she captures the romp and the pathos that defined Ruth’s life and times. Drawing from more than 250 interviews, a trove of previously untapped documents and Ruth family records, Leavy breaks through the mythology that has obscured the legend and delivers the man.
