About this title


In A Great Day for a Ballgame, narrator Fielding is a writer who sells a story to a fashion magazine and is invited to meet the literary editor Amelia West in her midtown New York office. It turns out shes a fan and, surprise, she instantly likes him in person. For his part, he too is hooked, attracted by her beauty but also by the disarming fact that she really is in tune with him. She can appreciate his wit, observations, and theories. As they start dating, she even understands his concept of a storyline dialoguetwo fictional characters, or real-life people, having a conversation that is moving toward the same end, so that their lines are interchangeable. At one point, when Amelia makes a comment, Fielding comically says, Thats my line. Except for the cigarettes, this could be a story of the present or future, but its also good to see it as a part of New Yorks past. I had a remarkable feeling that I was in one of my own stories, the Fielding character says.
