Product Details


“This is not simply a novel about basketball in the dark ages. Mr. Rosen has much more on his mind here. This is a book about guilt and redemption, about the loss of innocence, about racism and bigotry, about class differences … [He] gets the ambiance just right: the moving from town to town, the sometimes horrid conditions under which they play, the weariness and sense of dislocation, the bigotry and ignorance they encounter.” –The New York Times Book Review

“Rosen … certainly knows his basketball … But his depth and erudition makes this a tale of much more than sport. Rosen gives us a sometimes agonizing, often hilarious journey through American history, and a poignant account of what keeps a man running.” –Chicago Tribune

“Rosen is one of the few people to even try to write basketball novels … He [writes] in a gut-wrenching, riveting style that most novelists would envy.” –The Beacon Journal
