"I also must confess that the last part -- about him keeping the glove in front of his face and then peering around it -- was a fabrication. I don't remember if that really happened, though it seems like something that might have, like something CJ would have done. Who the hell can remember all the details of a summer day twenty years ago?" Check out that unreliable narration, folks. I am all about unreliable narration. I'm also all about f-ed up families and sibling rivalry and brothers and baseball and possible affairs between the narrator's wife and his little brother the superstar baseball player that are implied but never confirmed because the narration is just. that. unreliable. Seriously, I couldn't put the freaking thing down.
