Synopsis: The long-awaited new novel from the author of If I Never Get Back-"poignant and humorous, Havana Heat moves with the crispness of a perfectly turned double play." (The Cincinnati Post)
The author of If I Never Get Back returns with a new novel set in the golden age of baseball. Havana Heat takes readers back to 1911 America, where thirty-six-year-old Luther Taylor, legendary deaf pitcher, is trying to work his arm back into fighting shape. A real-life star pitcher for John McGraw's New York Giants, Taylor helped lead his team to the pennant, winning 115 games between 1900 and 1908. But an injury relegated him to the minors, and he dreams of one last shot at the big time. He gets his chance when McGraw invites him to join the Giants on a barnstorming trip to Cuba. There, Taylor faces off against the tough Havana teams ... and meets a deaf Cuban boy with a spectacular pitching arm.
Havana Heat transports us back to a time when baseball shaped the lives of generations, and gave us our heroes.
About the Author: Darryl Brock is currently at work on a sequel to If I Never Get Back (1990).
