STEALING HOME , by Sharon Robinson (HarperCollins Publishers, 213 pages, $24.00).

Sharon Robinson adds a daughter’s view to this year’s fiftieth-anniversary commemoration of Jackie Robinson’s breaking of baseball’s color barrier in 1947. The man she reveals is as admirable in his private life as he was on the baseball field, devoting as much time as he could to his wife and three children, even as his public life became more and more demanding.
