Description
Advance Praise for Frank Deford&'s The Entitled&
&
&?Frank Deford is not just an immensely talented sportswriter, he&'s an immensely talented American writer. The Entitled is his wise and pleasurable portrait of a Willy Loman-like baseball manager finally getting his chance in the Bigs late in his career.&? -David Halberstam&
&
&
&?The Entitled sets for itself no less a task than limning the conscience of our age. In men like Traveler and Alcazar we find the beating heart and struggling soul of baseball; and in their story we rediscover the redemptive power of the game&'s simple magic and moral order. Intimately bound by their circumstance, by mutual need and grudging respect-and finally by their love-they are at once the past, the present and the future of our national pastime.&?-Jeff MacGregor, Sports Illustrated; author of Sunday Money&
&
&?The Entitled is a baseball masterpiece, like The Natural and Field of Dreams; the difference is the plot and the characters depict the true inside world of baseball. Frank Deford writes like he played in the majors for 10 years.&?-Mike Schmidt, Baseball Hall of Fame
