Neugeboren's debut collection of stories and third book. The title story, actually a novella, won the Transatlantic Review Novella Award, tells the story of Corky's baseball-playing brother, "probably the most famous guy in our neighborhood in Brooklyn," and is narrated by Howie. This adolescent Howie is also the voice behind five other stories within the collection, all also set in Brooklyn. Neugeboren's ability to use sports as his arena for fictional settings is top-notch.
