    Om The Art of Fielding

    'It's left a little hole in my life the way a really good book will' Jonathan Franzen 'This is an outstanding novel about sport and, in Henry Skrimshander, Harbach has created a character who will keep sports psychologists in conversation for years' Mike Atherton, The Times 'Charming, warm-hearted, addictive' Guardian 'Once started The Art of Fielding is a book you want to read and read. It is deliciously old-fashioned: it simply gets on with the business of creating vivid, layered characters and telling a good, engrossing story' Daily Telegraph 'An intricate, poised, tingling debut ... leaves you longing, lingering, and a baseball convert long after the last page' Tea Obreht, author of The Tiger's Wife, winner of the Orange Prize 'Chad Harbach has hit a game-ender with The Art of Fielding. It's pure fun, easy to read, as if the other Fielding had a hand in it - as if Tom Jones were about baseball and college life.' John Irving Steeped in American tradition, this moving debut hits a home run...What in less skilled hands might have been a light comic novel evolves into a debut of great warmth and weight... This is a charming, moving and slyly profound novel. You might even say Chad Harbach hit this one out of the park' Sunday Telegraph 'Every bit as good as billed. A big, beautiful blowout of a book, sure and generous, it reads like a throwback to the mid-20th century, when American literature was in its pomp... an exceptional debut' Guardian 'A terrifically engaging novel... you will be rewarded by a page-turning, beguiling and wonderfully warm-hearted read'. Sunday Times 'The baseball sequences are terrific... Harbach captures precisely the strangely becalmed grace that sets sportsmen like Henry apart...Very good indeed' Independent
