The best Ebook Brittle Innings One of the joys of reading is discovering a book that you had bought years ago but never gotten around to reading. I finally read "Brittle Innings," and I was genuinely moved by what a brilliant piece of baseball fiction it is. I had only read one work by Michael Bishop in the past, a sci-fi collection of stories, and this only shows you shouldn't narrowly assume authors can only write well in one genre. This book ranks up there with Lardner and Harris with its joy of language. Set in Georgia during WWII, this story of an Oklahoma teen who is a mid-season addition to a minor league professional baseball team is a pleasure. That the author pulls off this feat with his main character mute through half the novel and with a second main character who may be a major literary figure from the past is all the more reason to rave about this novel. Bishop doesn't shirk from accurately tackling the racial views of the times either. It's a shame that this book never received the widespread recognition that it deserved when it was published. Maybe the title or the cover art were too ambiguous for a book that defies easy description. Find this book in a library or used bookstore. Highly recommended.
