Michael Sokolove is a contributing writer for The New York Times Magazine and the author of Hustle: The Myth, Life, and Lies of Pete Rose. He lives in Bethesda, Maryland, with his wife and their three children.
"Michael Sokolove knows a good story when he sees one, and the tale he tells in The Ticket Out about the often sorrowful lives of Darryl Strawberry and his high school baseball teammates is powerful indeed." -- The Washington Post "A terrific read, made to work by Sokolove's insightful reporting and deft writing." -- The Chicago Tribune "The Ticket Out raises some serious questions about the meaning of fair play." -- Sports Illustrated "More than the sad saga of Darryl Strawberry, The Ticket Out examines and explodes an American myth: that athletic skill offers a magic shortcut to happiness and success." -- Mark Bowden, author of Black Hawk Down "The Ticket Out is an emotional detective story about baseball, moving and thought-provoking." -- Sally Jenkins, coauthor with Lance Armstrong of It's Not About the Bike and Every Second Counts "The Ticket Out does for baseball what the 1994 movie Hoop Dreams did for basketball." -- Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times
