ARRIBA BASEBALL!: A COLLECTION OF LATINA/O BASEBALL FICTION
From Dodger Stadium to the Astrodome, from the Río Grande Valley to Chicago, from Veracruz to Puerto Rico, from high-school teams to stickball in the streets, from the lessons of fathers to the excited joy of daughters, from massive cheering in the stands at Wrigley Field to the dynamics of family and community echoing on the diamond, these fifteen stories use the sport of baseball to explore geographical, cultural and dream-like spaces that transcend traditional notions of the game and transform it into a universal yet wholly individual experience.
Featuring the work of David Rice, Dagoberto Gilb, Norma Elia Cantú, Nelson Denis, Christine Granados, René Saldaña, Jr., and many more.
You don't have to be a baseball fan to be enthralled by this exciting and often poignant collection of fiction.
