Title: Calico Joe
By: John Grisham
Although John Grisham is best known for his legal thrillers, this small novel about a fictional baseball player brings out the best of his writing. Calico Joe has a breakout rookie season setting batting records right and left and gaining fans with each at bat.
This is his story and the story of one of his most ardent fans who also happens to be the son of a major league pitcher on an opposing team.
Read this book for the excitement of baseball as well as a look at how celebrity can affect already stressed family dynamics.
A welcome change from Grisham's legal thrillers.
