9780253336965: Imagining Baseball: America's Pastime and Popular Culture

"... McGimpsey displays erudition, clever insights and a knack for the wickedly funny wisecrack (several of which are aimed at his beloved, and beleaguered, Montreal Expos). Literary baseball may be a drastically over-analyzed subject, but, like an overachieving rookie, McGrimpsey produces a far better book on it than one would have ever thought possible." —Louis Jacobson, Washington Post

"This is the most important critical book on baseball literature in many years." —Murray Sperber, author of Onward to Victory

From Field of Dreams to The Natural, from baseball cards to highbrow fiction, this book explores the place of baseball in American popular culture.
