About the Author

Marvin Cohen is the author of numerous novels, plays, and collections of short pieces, including SADNESS CORRECTED: NEW POEMS AND DIALOGUES; RUN OUT OF PROSE; WOMEN, AND TOM GERVASI; INSIDE THE WORLD: AS AL LEHMAN; The Self-Devoted Friend; Others, Including Morstive Sternbump; and Baseball as Metaphysics. He lives in New York City.
Jim Bouton was a major league pitcher for the New York Yankees, Seattle Pilots, Houston Astros and Atlanta Braves. His book, Ball Four, was entered into evidence at the decisive arbitration hearing that led to free-agency in baseball, and the New York Public Library included it as one of its Books of the Century.


"Probably the most sympathetic book ever written about the game."
-- New York Post

"Cohen's essays on the sport never become trapped in sentimentality or overblown analysis -- as pleasing as a perfect game with two out in the ninth."
-- Penthouse

"Cohen approaches baseball as the artist does a great work of art -- it contains, for him, the metaphysical, the holy, the myth, that which lives beyond us, love. Seeing baseball as the supreme art, we are drawn into the book, and close to whatever art we are involved in, close to life."
-- Margins

"Unlike any book on baseball that you have ever read."
-- Arizona Republic
