Mark Harris, 1922 - 2007

Mark Harris died last Wednesday. His book Bang the Drum Slowly is one of my favorite baseball novels. I recommend it.

Here is a photo of him with Groucho Marx.

    I saw him on the 1961, "You Bet Your Life" (he was teaching at San Francisco State at the time). Groucho was totally enthralled with his writing, and the book,"Wake Up, Stupid". I had no inkling his writing would take off like it did. You could tell he was a very decent person.
