Review quote

¿It¿s left a little hole in my life the way a really good book will, after making room in my days for reading it ¿ which is also what a really good book will do.¿ ¿ Jonathan Franzen ¿Chad Harbach has hit a game-ender with The Art of Fielding. It¿s pure fun, easy to read, as if the other Fielding had a hand in it¿as if Tom Jones were about baseball and college life.¿ ¿John Irving ¿An intricate, poised, tingling debut. Harbach¿s muscular prose breathes new life into the American past-time, recasts the personal worlds that orbit around it, and leaves you longing, lingering, and a baseball convert long after the last page.¿ ¿ Tea Obrecht, author of The Tiger¿s Wife
