Fast Break to Line Break is a vibrant reminder that we human beings take nothing quite so seriously as we do our games. What joy to hear these remarkable writers speak so passionately about a metal rim, an arcing ball, and the countless lessons learned on and off the court. Nothing but net, here.
—Dinty W. Moore, author of Between Panic & Desire
The resplendent prose skirmishing in Fast Break to Line Break wrests verse from the mitts of baseball’s ham-handed mutts and delivers poetry to another genre—basketball’s articulated fingertips where the spin is spun into the english on the English.
—Michael Martone, author of Four for a Quarter
