Hack is an old man. Although he was a celebrated, award-winning sports manager, his life is behind him. I don't like to give away plot, but I will say that (SPOILERS) in the first page, he is diagnosed with a lethal form of cancer. Hack is foul-mouthed and abrasive, insulting and hostile. No one wants him around. But, he's dying. And early on in the book, he 'hits bottom' so to speak, and decides to go back to the place where he had value - baseball - and starts to find himself again.
The section ends with a surprising twist, and it definitely made me want to read the next section!
The writer here is terrific. He is cracker-jack paced and his descriptions are vivid. He doesn't flinch from powerful images. Hack is a disgusting, foul-mouthed old man, at least at the start, and the writer lets you see him in all his glory.
So quick warning: if you're uncomfortable with foul language, this might not be the story for you. But if you like your books gritty and real, and/or are looking for a good sports story, I'd check this one out!
