Calico Joe” by John Grisham

This is the first nov­el I can recall reading…in a long, long time. I guess “A Catch­er In The Rye” is a nov­el, but def­i­nite­ly not a mod­ern-day nov­el. Grant­ed, this book, which is about a pair of fic­tion­al Major League Base­ball play­ers and their inter­twined careers, con­tains numer­ous fac­tu­al depic­tions of the ear­ly 1970 MLB play­ers and over­all his­to­ry. I read this 198 page book last night in one sit­ting. A ter­rif­ic book by one of this century’s great writ­ers. MUST READ
