Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Each work, chosen with exquisite care by an expert, is analyzed and summarized. Its greatness as baseball literature, its place in the genre, its peculiarities, weaknesses, strengths, how the critics went for it — all are discussed in such a way, with quotations, that reading or browsing Shannon's book is equivalent to absorbing a rich history of the sport.

Book News Annotation:

This is a paperbound reprint of a 1989 book. Shannon, a writer-editor heavily involved with baseball since childhood, made a careful selection of 100 books, and his essays present a kind of history of the sport since 1950. Most of the selections are from the 1970s and 1980s, reflecting, he says, improved writing on the subject. He analyzes each piece of writing, summarizing its importance as baseball literature, its place in the genre, and what the critics thought of it when published.
