Richard Ben Cramer uses his investigative skills to uncover startling, even shocking information about Joe DiMaggio's life. He presents DiMaggio's life, from his first games for the Yankees in the 1930s, his marriage to Marilyn Monroe and his rise to hero status, as a story of the media. He shows the invention of national celebrity in America and the ways in which fame can both build and destroy reputations.
