This debut popular novel tells the story of a down and out wide receiver given one last shot playing for a second tier football team. Larry's writing style is laugh-out-loud funny and the characters are vivid and memorable. "This guy Gaffney has got some hard miles on him/in him, but he has come through, and man can he write Open anywhere, read a paragraph or three, and hear the real thing: mind and heart made vivid by way of the world's body. Save room on your best shelf for him." -William Heyen / National Book Award Finalist, 2004 "Larry Gaffney is incredibly adept at creating characters who drive themselves, quite reasonably, towards excrutiating failure. Indeed, much of the humor and pathos of Larry's writing comes from watching-through your fingers- each of these characters' understandable and ill-fated decisions." -Wayne Gladstone, Author
