Book Description

Revised for Kindle, Nobody Bats a Thousand is a book of stories based on reality. The opening story, “A Bar Story”, showing a typical Friday night seen through the eyes of a middle-aged bartender, deals with conflicts that arise from changing times and generations. In “Home on the Range” a college student becomes reacquainted with his uncle, a famous touring musician, who teaches his nephew to look at life from a novel perspective. “Victims of Circumstance” centers on a young slacker and the 24 hours surrounding his 21st birthday in which he stumbles upon epiphanies about life, sex and his Vietnam veteran father. This book of literary fiction contains eight finely crafted stories about ordinary people involved in unique situations, presented in a style reminiscent of Raymond Carver, Richard Ford and David Sedaris.

“…good writing, interesting characters…”, --Ken Babbs, author of ‘Who Shot the Water Buffalo?’

5.0 out of 5 stars Steve bats a thousand !!!!!! October 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I could find my hometown in Steve's stories.......vivid accounts of people we have all known sometime in our lives. Humorous and sad tales and just everyday situations we've all been in (with a twist now and then). My Book Club read it and I want more.

2.0 out of 5 stars possibly good stories. so poorly written July 25, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Sadly this is one of those self published books that give self publishing a bad name. Lengthy sentences and unnecessary verbiage made it difficult to discover a plot in any of the stories. A good editing of the manuscript would have saved it.
