Description

Buy a ticket for a bus ride taking you from North to Central to South America and a boat ride to the Caribbean along with a traveling baseball team. Discover baseball in all its mythical allure: Rainbow Curve is a compelling tale about race, politics, corrupting power and one man's courage to stand up against it. An aging baseball player, his multi-cultural teammates, a domineering manager, and a South American drug lord-are all brought together in Rainbow Curve, a gripping novel that explores the international baseball scene. Moving from training camps in Sun City, Arizona, to Wrigley Field in Chicago, to a mountain citadel in Columbia, author Michael Boylan expertly draws connections between America's favorite pastime, cultural power, and ethical choice. -Linda Furgerson Selzer, Associate Professor of English/ Penn State University. Michael Boylan writes like a true baseball fan. Rainbow Curve is a novel filled with more than 9 innings of history. From barnstorming and tales about the Negro Leagues to the Chicago Cubs, Boylan examines the life of players on and off the field. Bo Mellan, Rainbow Billy Beauchamp and Buddy Beal are just some of the characters who give this novel a high batting average. Baseball is not just a game about balls and strikes, it's also about economics, race, youth and growing old. Rainbow Curve is a reminder of why we sing "God Bless America" at the ballpark. - E. Ethelbert Miller, Literary Activist and author of The 5th Inning.
