Synopsis

In our exclusive interview, Chad talks about the pursuit of perfection, his love for Moby-Dick and the aspects of baseball that make it such an alluring topic for writers.

A wonderful, warm novel from a major new American voice.

Henry Skrimshander, newly arrived at college, shy and out of his depth, has a talent for baseball that borders on genius. But sometimes it seems that his only friend is big Mike Schwartz - who champions the talents of others, at the expense of his own. And Owen, Henry's clever, charismatic, gay roommate, who has a secret that could put his brilliant college career in jeopardy.

Pella, the 23-year-old daughter of the college president, has returned home after a failed marriage, determined to get her life in order. Only to find her father, a confirmed bachelor, has fallen desperately in love himself.

Then, one fateful day, Henry makes a mistake - misthrows a ball. And everything changes...

Staff Choice

I'm tempted to say this book is worth a read for the character names alone and leave it at that, but I won't because there's too much good stuff to say aobut it. The characters are brilliant, the baseball is brilliant (even though I am not a sports fan) and the plot is enthralling. Not to mention the smatterings of Moby Dick you'll encounter. This book really does almost have it all. It will grip you from start to finish, and keep you entertained throughout.
