Now on sale: The Brooklyn Nine in paperback!

>> Thursday, February 4, 2010


Now in stores--The Brooklyn Nine in paperback! Here's what da critics had to say, back when it was new in hardcover:


"Gratz builds this novel upon a clever enough conceit—nine stories (or innings), each following the successive generations in a single family, linked by baseball and Brooklyn—and executes it with polish and precision."
Ian Chipman, Booklist (Starred Review)
 
"With an impressively cohesive mix of sports, historical fiction, and family history, Gratz has crafted a wonderful baseball book that is more than the sum of its parts."
The Horn Book
 
"The fictional voice is sure and engaging, polished without being slick—an entertaining and compelling look at the deep roots of our national pastime."
Kirkus Reviews

See? You don't have to take my word for it. Now go, buy a couple dozen! They make excellent coffee table books. Or coffee tables, if you buy enough of them.
