A. B. Guthrie Jr. (1901–91) was a historian and novelist whose 1949 book The Way West won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction. Playing Catch-Up is a sequel to his three earlier works, Wild Pitch, The Genuine Article, and No Second Wind, all available in Bison Books editions.Review:
“Humor, suspense, logic, and entertainment in nice amounts.”—Publishers Weekly (Publishers Weekly)
“A lean, muscular yarn with two very engaging heroes, a mildly involved plot, and a clear-headed style that reminds the reader of the Montana spring in which the story is set. Young Jason, whom we first saw as a gawky high school ballplayer, has grown up into a man to be reckoned with.”—James Sherburne, author of the Paddy Moretti mysteries (James Sherburne)
“Playing Catch-Up was a special joy. . . . Guthrie is an American treasure, an authentic Great Writer standing trunk and torso above his closest challengers.”—Loren D. Estleman, author of the Amos Walker mysteries (Loren D. Estleman)
"Guthrie's strengths include well-sketched characters, a sure sense of place and milieu, and a tale that hangs together well. In short, it's entertainment of a high order that's good to see back in print."—Dennis Drabelle, Washington Post (Dennis Drabelle Washington Post 2011-03-01)
