Nathanael "Crybaby" Isbister was once the greatest baseball player in the world, but now he's a down-on-his-luck drifter on the road to oblivion. That is until he wanders into a circus sideshow troupe stranded in a tiny Michigan town dominated by a hellfire-and brimstone religious sect. The sect vows to drive the troupe out, but give them one unlikely chance to remain-the baseball game to end all baseball games. A funny, moving novel, Home Game walks the straight but delicate line between absurdity and compassion with dazzling style and expertise.
