Book Recommendations


The Art of Fielding

by Chad Harbach

I’ve been pushing around The Art of Fielding over the last year or two, by Chad Harbach. I love that book. It’s a baseball theme, but it’s really about life, and all that goes with it, and complexities in relationships. There’s something about it. That book just sucked me in, and I love the feeling of being sucked in, which doesn’t happen with that intensity too often, so that was a good one.
