Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"This is the wittiest, most irreverent baseball novel to come along in many a season. The minor league Arkansas Reds are appropriately named, since the team's one-armed manager, Lefty Marks, is an avowed radical and two of its members are infiltrators from Castro's Cuba. Other players are social misfits, including the book's delightful narrator, ex-con Hog Durham. Together they make a run for the Dixie Association's league pennant. Author Hays' satirical humor is incisive, focusing on Southern mores in general and on politicians and born-again religious fanatics in particular. Depending on one's persuasions, this novel is either sacreligious or hilariously entertaining. Those in agreement with the author's viewpoint will have occasion to chuckle often—and heartily—while reading this book." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
