From the Inside Flap:

"A wise and wonderful debut, one that makes you think about the choices you make in life. Tom Coyne is a writer to watch."-Nicholas Sparks, author of The Notebook and Message in a Bottle

"A Gentleman s Game is an absolutely pure first novel. With dead solid perfect prose, Tom Coyne captures the magic and tension between fathers and sons. A stunning debut."-Elwood Reid, author of If I Don t Six and What Salmon Know

Tom Coyne s prose is sure and precise and elegant and true. A Gentleman s Game is a fine coming-into-manhood story and a damn good golf novel. It s also a long clean swing at the old myths about family and class and making it, and I m certain it s the start of a brilliant career. -Valerie Sayers, author of Due East and Brain Fever

Stop working on your short game and read this terrific book! -David Owen, author of My Usual Game and The Making of the Masters

Book Description Condition: New. Ships From Canada. New in new dust jacket. Glued binding. Paper over boards. 224 p. Audience: General/trade. Book Description: It is the summer of 1985, and Timmy Price is a golf caddy at his father's exclusive country club. Timmy has quite a swing himself, his mastery of the game inspires awe among the membership and envy among his peers, including fellow caddy and friend Jamie Byrne. But under pressure from his well-meaning, self-made father, as well as the privileged club members, Timmy soon realizes that it isn't easy being both a rising star and just another looper in the caddy hole. Under the tutelage of enigmatic guru Foster Pearse, Timmy hopes to develop a game that will make him the state junior Champion. But his time with Pearse, and Jamie's mysterious disappearance, help Timmy realize that life's real importance lies not in wealth, status symbols, or the ability to fire low golf scores. He comes to play the game for purity, not prizes, and in doing so discovers the integrity. Seller Inventory # 9183000070
