"Like life, it's sort of boring for long stretches and generally nothing hap pens, but then all of a sudden every thing goes off." Sports columnist Jim my Lee Lester is writing about baseball, but the description is equally apt for this soporific novel. Seldom has Americana been sliced with a duller knife than in this story of an ex-univer sity professor who winds up covering a minor league baseball team for a small- town Louisiana newspaper. The char acters and their circumstances are sup posed to be colorful, but the writing limits them all to shades of gray. Only near the end, when a prominent evan gelist is implicated in a pregnancy cov er-up and the home-town team vies for the championship, does the story be come half-way interesting. Too late. Will Hepfer, SUNY at Buffalo Libs.
