    1. This might be the best work of fiction I ve read in years Roary tells the story of his friend Jerry, whom he knows from Max s bar, where cripples hang out Roary idolizes Jerry and Jerry needs Roary to give him confidence when he needs it most There s also basketball, druggie whores, an actress with a heart of gold and a limp , a rich widow, Sport Illustrated, the Celtics, ballet and Mostly, though, it s the story of a friendship, told so well from one point of view The book will break your hear [...]


    2. On my own, I d probably never have chosen a book set in 1970 s San Francisco, about a group of guys with disabilities who hang out at the same bar all the time, and end up befriending a pro basketball player, but now I wonder why that didn t sound interesting to me at first I m really glad someone in my book club chose this for us It s a charming little gem of a book, and everyone in the club even those who have zero interest in sports liked it a lot.


    3. Gritty but sweet toned fable about an interesting group of characters in the Bay Area, circa mid seventies Well told in an efficient and spare style with a knowing and humane intelligence driving it all For some reason it felt like, in a good way, one of those classic young adult novels from the same time period but, obviously, dealing with adult subject matter Still trying to suss this thought out A quick and very satisfying read Inspired what is supposed to be a fine film version.


    4. This is another of the four books recently published by Dark Horse in their Pharos Editions You can see my description of a Seattle Town Hall event I attended that describes the Pharos editions new printings of worthy out of print works and the Washington State writers who recommended them at my previous review of Land of Plenty at review show Sherman Alexie recommended Inside Moves and wrote the introduction to this edition He spoke quite eloquently at the Town Hall event about his love for the [...]


    5. has republished this as part of their new Pharos series of unrecognized fine novels It is a nice sports novel to read Set mostly in a dive bar in San Francisco s Inner Sunset neighborhood, peopled by injured VN vets Walton s career after this first novel is just as interesting a handful of unsuccessful novels, books on creative writing and books on yoga and Buddhism, and even some music CD s have filled out his resume The basketball is rather unbelievable, but just a little over the top The fir [...]


    6. Actually this is a re read for me I read this my first year of college becauseI couldn t see the movie It wasn t playing locally I bought the book, devoured it, and while I still think it is a great book even though I don t understand the ending I can even see why I enjoyed it so much then, even than the movie which too was enjoyable Walton has a very crisp economical writing style which is Hemingwayesque, but still somewhat original He can pack a lot into a few pages He can use dialogue to sho [...]


    7. A lovely, unpretencious, straight forward, clean read I d never had picked it up on my own it s about guys, guy friendships, and basketball and physical limitations , but it was a book club choice This is why I love book club I often read books that turn out very enjoyable, but not ones I d normally gravitate to.


    8. This book has great characters and a good story It is definately 3 A new Pharo edition of an out of print book recommended by Sherman Alexie.
