BRITTLE INNINGS by Michael Bishop
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: April 15, 1994

From the author of such noted works as Unicorn Mountain (1988), No Enemy But Time (1982), and others comes this remarkable novel, set in 1943, inspired by bush-league baseball and—it sounds incongruous, but Bishop pulls it off brilliantly—literature's most famous monster. Talented 17-year-old shortstop Danny Boles leaves Tenkiller, Oklahoma, to join the Hellbridge Hellbenders, a class C farm club in Georgia's Chattahoochee Valley League—but on the train to Hellbridge he's robbed and brutally raped, and loses his ability to speak.

After cultural-snob Xavier Thaxton, Fine Arts editor of the Salonika Suburbanite, swims in a pond whose waters (unbeknownst to Xavier) are contaminated with illegally dumped radioactive waste, his life takes a strange turn.
