9.0% "My baseball read of the season...gotta be honest, the alliteration at the beginning almost did me in, but I can see that this book holds so much more than just word games and "look at me" sentences. And, being a huge Papa fan, I have to admit my love for the sections about Hem and fishing, and Hem and wanting to write the GAN. Roth, sir, you may have outdone yourself, and here I am only 35 pages in."
