FOR USE IN SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES ONLY. Uses the fanatical and aggressive world of professional baseball to mirror contemporary society.Review:
Roy Hobbs, the protagonist of The Natural, makes the mistake of pronouncing aloud his dream: to be the best there ever was. Such hubris, of course, invites divine intervention, but the brilliance of Bernard Malamud's novel is the second chance it offers its hero, elevating him--and his story--into the realm of myth.
