“The Art of Fielding” is a book about baseball, the great American sport that has served as inspiration for many authors. At the center of the tale is Henry Skrimshander, a superstar shortstop who never makes an error -- until he does, and sets into motion his own unraveling. While the action of the novel is on the baseball diamond, the story is as much about life at a liberal arts college, relationships between men and the pursuit of perfection. With literary references from Melville to T.S. Eliot, as many critics have pointed out, it’s a baseball novel with something for everyone. From our May Readers’ Review, Diane and guests discuss “The Art of Fielding” by Chad Harbach.
