Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

His name is J. Henry Waugh. He eats delicatessen, drinks in a neighborhood bar, picks up B-girls, and likes counrty music. But he has one strange obsession. He has devised a baseball game whose every action is determined by a throw of the dice. He is the nighttime proprietor of the Universal Baseball Association, its master and its slave.

"The reader is fascinated, exhilarated, overpowered." Chicago News
