One of the most beautiful books I’ve read all year. Nothing can describe this book better than this quote:

“Recognition, fame - I think all the time I stood outside my house in Charlestown, Indiana, a two-tone brick, and I threw a baseball where the different colors met. I hit it over and over and over again. We caught flies where it got too dark to see, just hours and hours and hours and hours…that’s what most of us have done.”
