Ohh…to go back to the gentler times of innocent beaver-shooting.
After striking out with O.J. Simpson’s If I Did It, Regan Books is back with another not-quite-nonfiction, not-quite-fiction book, 7: The Mickey Mantle Novel, by Peter Golenbock, Publishers Weekly reported today. Described as an “inventive memoir” by the author, the book is about baseball great Mickey Mantle and insiders who have seen the book called it “porn,” “debased” and “exploitative.” 7 is set to be published in March.
...There are several passages that will most likely be controversial, including claims that Mantle had an affair with Marilyn Monroe while she was married to Joe DiMaggio and that the late Billy Martin was a rapist.
