REVIEW | THE ART OF FIELDING
This is a book by Chad Harbach.
Setting: Wisconsin, present
# of Pages: 512
The skinny: I hate baseball, which doesn’t matter because this is a book about so much more than baseball.
The fat: Harbach’s prose is elegant, seamless, and disarmingly funny. His characters grow and shrink and buckle up in agony as they struggle against life and death and everything in between. Literature and athletics meld together until a championship baseball game reads like a Greek tragedy. Marvelous. Must read, and read again.
