From the Back Cover:

More than 350 sets of brothers have played in the Major Leagues, but few have had the skill, the charisma, or the success of the DiMaggio brothers. Joe DiMaggio is an American icon and one of the greatest athletes of the twentieth ­century. But two of his brothers were dynamic players in their own right. Dominic, affectionately known as "The Little Professor," was a seven-time All-Star who played for the Boston Red Sox. And Vince DiMaggio, the eldest, made two All-Star teams while playing for the Pittsburgh Pirates.

The DiMaggios reveals how three kids from an immigrant family found their way to the upper echelons of American sports and popular culture. A vivid portrait of a family and the ways in which their shifting fortunes and status shaped their relationships, it is also a transporting exploration of an era and a culture, using baseball as a lens to view and understand American society in the twentieth century.
