    CRUZ MEMOIR FOLLOWS IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF OTHER GIANTS

    CRUZ MEMOIR FOLLOWS IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF OTHER GIANTS

    "Victor Cruz, author, could rival the drawing power of some legendary Giants
    scribes, says Walter Boyer, co-owner of Bookends, the independent bookseller in
    Ridgewood.



    The wide receiver will be writing a memoir his agent describes as an
    inspirational tale of the challenges he overcame en route to sudden NFL stardom.
    The publisher is Celebra, a Hispanic celebrity imprint of Penguin Group.
    Interviews with potential co-authors are under way. The New York Post reported
    last week that the memoir should reach bookstores before NFL training camps open
    this summer.




    "We would love to be a launch" for the promotion tour, said Boyer, whose East
    Ridgewood Avenue shop has hosted a slew of Giants book
    signings — Phil Simms, David Tyree, Harry Carson, Justin Tuck and Michael
    Strahan among them.




    The biggest draw was Lawrence Taylor. More than 1,000 people turned out in
    2004 when the Hall of Fame linebacker signed copies of "LT: Over the Edge."




    Boyer said Cruz could attract that many because he is coming off a breakout
    year and grew up just a few miles from the store.




    The shopkeeper is expecting a "positive" book appealing to both men and women
    and possibly a national audience.




    "He's young, he seems to be a nice guy and approachable, and I'm sure there's
    a spiritual side to him that will come out in the book," Boyer said."
