The Art of Fielding

PS3608.A72513 A87 2011
Chad Harbach “Each of us, deep down, believes that the whole world issues from his own precious body, like images projected from a tiny slide onto an earth-sized screen. And then, deeper down, each of us knows he’s wrong.” (1)

One of the only sports novels on the list, Harbach’s novel takes us to the shores of Lake Superior, where the fictional Westish College will soon become one of the best baseball teams in the country because of phenom shortstop Henry Skrimshander. Following him from freshman to senior years, this novel beautifully examines the nature of sport and athletic achievement, as well as the cost of sacrificing everything to get what you want.(2)

Chad Harbach 亨利是密西根湖岸衛斯提許大學棒球校隊裡的明日之星,人生正朝著大聯盟球場前進,他不僅是天生的游擊手,也是整支球隊的靈魂核心。就在一次爭逐全國冠軍賽的那個夏天,亨利碰上球場生涯以來最大的危機,他的恐懼竟引發一連串連鎖效應,改變了球隊戰友的人生方向。

全書圍繞亨利和校隊戰友間的友誼和愛情,在勁筆描寫精采緊湊的賽場背後,作者更細膩刻畫年輕人即將踏入成人社會必須面臨的殘酷抉擇,書寫青春生命背後的渴望焦慮和祕密。作者天生文筆真情動人,尤其對年輕人放不掉的回憶、對光明前程的憧憬、在殘酷現實人生前怯懦詰問夢想的掙扎與哲思,引發極大共鳴。隨著球隊邁向戲劇性的冠軍總決賽,書中的五位主角真情相挺,幫助彼此找到真正該走的路。(博客來)
