About this title

Synopsis:

The Brooklyn Bimbos, a five-man softball team that plays in drag, provide crude sideshow comedy across the Deep South while their star shortstop, midget Pogo Burns, oblivious to his size, exerts his masculinity in games of softball, chance, and life

About the Author:

If the U.S. were to boast one great independent film director, he would be John Sayles, a cult figure among his admirers. Nominated for both an Academy Award for scriptwriting and a National Book Award, Sayles has written screenplays, teleplays, short stories, and novels and has worked as a script doctor for a virtual who's who of Hollywood film and television talent.
