Summary
Mike Schwartz discovers shortstop phenom Henry Skrimshander and convinces him to play baseball at Westish College in Wisconsin. When Henry throws a ball that hits his roommate Owen, his record is broken, his confidence shot, and his future changed. Meanwhile, college president and Melville scholar Guert Affenlight falls in love with Owen just as his prodigal daughter Pella returns home after a failed marriage.
Critique
The lives of five characters and the crises they face are intertwined in this intelligent novel that stresses the bonds of friendship and love. Highly recommended.
