This quiet book knocked me over with its unassuming depth and high emotional stakes. It’s the story of two characters, one a former academic who hasn’t left the house in ten years, and the other a struggling young baseball player. It is clear that these two need each other; what is unclear is how they will ever meet. This is one of the best novels to come out in 2012. Don’t miss it.
