**** stars "If it seems a stretch for a baseball novel to hold truth and beauty and the entire human condition in its mitt, well, ?The Art of Fielding? isn?t really a baseball novel at all, or not only. It?s also a campus novel and a bromance (and for that matter a full-fledged gay romance), a comedy of manners and a tragicomedy of errors ? the baseball kind as well as the other kind, which as Alexander Pope pointed out also has something to do with the human condition." Gregory Cowles, New York Times book review. Almost did not read this book because of the baseball theme - So glad I read it - Great character development - Very nice interweaving of individual stories - highly recommend
