Great primer on current state of publishing but Gessen is way too close to the author to be taken seriously...Having just finished the novel, I found it to be good but not great. I can understand why so many publishers passed. Regardless of what Gessen and others say it is a baseball novel...a darn good one at that. I am glad it was published after 10 years.
