This beguiling memoir is way more than a bittersweet look at the classic baseball film by its writer and director. It also a hilarious take on the curious, often maddening ways of Hollywood. A step-by-step account of how one person's simple idea (two guys in love with the same woman who's in love with the wrong guy) becomes a film. Also a how-to primer on the difficult art of screenwriting. Ron Shelton definitely hits it out of the park with "The Church of Baseball."
