I’ve heard three people (two men and a woman) strongly recommend The Art of Fielding (Little, Brown & Co., $26) by Chad Harbach in just the last two days. This beautifully written debut novel describes the intertwined lives of small-college baseball players, faculty, friends and family through strong characters and a plot that carries the reader fluidly through the novel … and wanting more at the end. Don’t let the baseball metaphor worry you. If you love baseball you’ll love it … and if you don’t, you’ll still love this wonderful book. This is strong, very readable literary fiction.
