Riverwoods, IL – June 9, 2018 – Author Joel M. Levin was inspired by the 2016 Chicago Cubs world championship. The Author was glad after waiting seventy-one years of this championship to happen – it has finally come. He experienced flashing memories and emotions returning to1945 where he witnessed his first ball game. As his memories flashed back, he wrote down and shared the treasure of his mind with his readers.
The story begins with a young boy whose family experienced the worst times in America: both depression and impending war. The boy started life as a loyal Chicago Cubs fan and remain true in his lifetime. This book is not considered a memoir, but an examination and reflection of life as time moved on and how the author experienced it.
Once again, it is from the vantage point of a sports fan. Call it a trilogy as it tells about three: the world at large, its impact on the author, and the destiny of the Chicago Cubs along the long, winding path to becoming the best team in baseball.
There are lots of references to the music of the time and is seasoned with humor, poetic expressions and a creative glimpse of curses, superstitions, and symbolization. The story opens with a young fan sitting in the bleachers. Every Cubs fan in Joel Levin’s age group has a unique story to tell. The best part has they reached the finish line together, seeing their lovable losers as the last team standing.
