Description

Gil Gamesh, the only pitcher who ever literally tried to kill the umpire. The ex-con first baseman John Baal, The Babe Ruth of the Big House, who never hit a homerun sober. If you've never heard of them or of the Ruppert Mundy's, the only homeless big-league ball team in American history it's because of the Communist plot and the capitalist scandal that expunged the entire Patriot League from baseball memory.

In this ribald, richly imagined, and wickedly satiric novel, Philip Roth turns baseball's status as national pastime and myth into the occasion for unfettered picaresque farce, replete with heroism, perfidy, ebullient wordplay, and a cast of characters that includes the House Un-American Activities Committee.

"Roth is better than he's ever been before....The prose is electric." - The Atlantic
