Foul Ball by Jim Bouton
Rate this book

Part memoir, part investigative journalism, Bouton reveals the big-time politics that take place even in small-town America. Lift enough rocks and you'll find more slugs than you ever imagined.

Sandy Koufax by Jane Leavy
Rate this book
Clear rating
I think the key to the book is in the subtitle. Koufax's legacy is the idea of trying to reach perfection. The structure of the book, breaking up the nine innings of his perfect game into essentially alternating chapters, highlights this theme nicely ...more

High Heat by Tim Wendel
"A perfectly competent, but somewhat self involved look at the fastball and the fastest pitchers ever. A fine job-he hits everyone you might expect-W.Johnson, Grove, Feller, Ryan, Wagner, Gossage, Paige, all the way up to The Anchorman, Steven Stra..." Read more of this review »

“Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.
Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”
James J. Lachard

Cormac McCarthy
“The world soon to be largely populated by men who would eat your children in front of your eyes and the cities themselves held by cores of blackened looters who tunneled among the ruins and crawled from the rubble white of tooth and eye carrying charred and anynymous tins of food in nylon nets like shoppers in the commissaries of hell. The soft black talc blew through the streets like squid ink uncoiling along a sea floor and the cold crept down and the dark came early and the scavengers passing down the steep canyons with their torches trod silky holes in the drifted ash that closed behind them silently as eyes. Out on the roads the pilgrims sank down and fell over and died and the bleak and shrouded earth went trundling past the sun and returned again as trackless and as unremarked as the path of any nameless sisterworld in the ancient dark beyond.”
Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Cormac McCarthy
“Scars have the strange power to remind us that our past is real.”
Cormac McCarthy, All the Pretty Horses

Annie Proulx
“If you can't fix it, you have to stand it.”
Annie Proulx

Émile Zola
“Civilization will not attain to its perfection until the last stone from the last church falls on the last priest.”
Émile Zola
