Format: Paperback
Just in time for the 100th Anniversary of America's most beloved baseball park, Fenway Park in Boston, comes this great collection of essays, articles, poems and short stories about the Beantown boys of summer. If you're a Red Sox fan, or just love baseball, this book will entertain. Features a gorgeous painted cover by artist Daniel Ibanez.
A truly fun collection for all sports fans.

First question: why Final? If Baseball is Life, which this collection of mostly short stories and a few poems, each informed in some way by the BoSox, would indicate, why not keep it going? There is a lot here to delight the dedicated and knowledgable Sox fan, but even for the kind of person who would bring a book (!) to Fenway Park just in case things got slow, there is a lot to love in this collection.

Stories about fathers and sons, of course, because so much of baseball centers around fathers and sons. But also stories about fathers and daughters. Uncles and nephews. Mothers and sons. Husbands and wives. Ex- husbands and ex- wives. Management and players. Perps and heroes. War and Peace. Life and Death.

It's all here, Sox Fans, stories ranging from the very good to the (many) truly wonderful. From the Chandleresque to the Kafkaesque.

Second question: hadn't you and your friends (and family) better read 'em before opening day? Because things could get busy, after. This could be the Year. Again.

Well written assemblage of short stories about the Red Sox Baseball team. The stories are threaded through the Red Sox's history and its beloved home in Fenway Park, but the stories are snippets of real life, albeit fictional telling. I loved the story of the retired baseball player who spent most of his life reliving a critical misplay that cost his team the World Series. Who hasn't wished they had a "do over" at some time or other. The irony of a down and out homeless person who saves the life of well to do judge, while trying to watch the ball game, gets high marks. The whimsical tongue in cheek story of baseball in the future with Martians, the divorced dad who wins his daughter back teaching baseball stats, finding your lifetime partner in a bar with common links to the Red Sox all stack up the social pluses that make for a very enjoyable read. Red Sox fans will love it, because it is about the Red Sox, but even if you root for another team, or even another sport, you will find the stories heart-warming.

The Fenway Fiction series has gotten better with each book. I especially liked the imagination behind the two very different stories, Underneath by Bryan Farrow and Beanball by Henry Garfield. A must-read for baseball fans and short-story fiction fans, and a nice way to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Fenway--buy it!
