In this collection of stories you'll meet a bunch of memorable guys including Lonesome Shorty, a cowpoke torn between the proud life in the saddle and the comforts of warm apartments and women; Buddy, the teen-age leper in Sioux Falls; Earl Grey, the great tea inventor and former Republican child; Casey, at the bat in Mudville again; Dionysus, the god of wine; and Roy Bradley, boy broadcaster. Brilliantly funny, touching, and acute, these stories reveal the perilous situation of guys today.
Read it first and loved it. Then listened to the author read it in his sad helpless voice and loved it even more. It's a real jewel. My favorites were Buddy the Leper and Shorty, the Lonesome Cowboy.
