“A special book that gives an underappreciated time and place in baseball its due.”
“In Up, Up & Away, Jonah Keri has produced a book that is one part history, one part local legend, one part eulogy, and one part letter to a lost love. The Montreal Expos deserved a book, and they deserved this book.”

—John Thorn, Official Historian, Major League Baseball
