What a pleasant surprise this novella was! I enjoyed it very much and was delighted when the narrator waited for Donny under the Big Clock in Grand Central Station. Readers of the trilogy understand my meaning. I found his characterizations finely crafted and the hints of what we would see in JC's later fiction abound. Worth your time to pick it up and read it, fan or not, it is nicely crafted.

Through sharp insights into the human "dilemma," the reader encounters a world where life throws you a spitter, and you either have to dive for cover or take the base. By time you reach the last chapter, you are in a ninth inning of stress and heartache. Your decision: the suicide squeeze, full swing, or ball four?
