Description
(A New York Times Book Review Best Book of the Year) At Westish College, shortstop Henry Skrimshander seems destined for big league baseball until a routine throw goes disastrously off course, and the aftermath of his error sends shockwaves through the fates of five people. Henry's fight against self-doubt threatens to ruin his future. College president Guert Affenlight falls unexpectedly and helplessly in love. Owen Dunne becomes caught up in a dangerous affair. Mike Schwartz realizes he has guided Henry's career at the expense of his own. And Pella Affenlight returns to Westish after escaping an ill-fated marriage, determined to start a new life. Chad Harbach's expansive, warmhearted tale—one of the five best novels of 2011, according to the New York Times Book Review—is about ambition and its limits, about family and friendship and love, and is "mere baseball fiction the way Moby Dick is just a fish story."—Nicholas Dawidoff

"Chad Harbach has hit a game-ender with The Art of Fielding. It's pure fun, easy to read, as if the other Fielding had a hand in it—as if Tom Jones were about baseball and college life."—John Irving
