Why you'll throw a winning pitch with sports fiction.

Remember the pitcher Dock Ellis? Did you know that Donald Hall, the poet, followed him around for the 1974 season? Brilliant book, fascinating subject.

It may surprise you to know that I used to be a computer programmer. In a couple of weeks, on October 3 at Kepler's Books and Magazines in Menlo Park, I will be interviewing another programmer-turned-novelist, the great Vikram Chandra. (I LOVED his Bombay gangster novel, Sacred Games.) Chandra's new book, Geek Sublime, is an ingenious blend of memoir, science writing, and philosophy. The link below will get you a ticket to the event, including a copy of the book. See you soon!
