Who knew PBS' Jim Lehrer is a novelist too?

I read a book to earn this badge: 
Oh, Johnny : a novel / Jim Lehrer
WWII-era story of a young man who dreams of playing for the Detroit Tigers, only to have dreams take a different turn as he enlists in the Marines and falls madly in love with a woman whose name he doesn't know. A fast read, told in a journalistic style. Interesting period details, esp about "old time" baseball.
