Catching Up On Things

I finally finished "Squeeze Play", the novel written more than a decade ago by Jane Leavy, who wrote "A Lefty's Legacy", the terrific biography of Sandy Koufax, which you must read if you haven't. With the popularity of the Koufax bio, "Squeeze Play" got re-released, and it's a gem.

So now I've started "The Time-Traveler's Wife", which is a fascinating concept, and written by Audrey Niffenegger, who teaches at Columbia College in Chicago, and in addition to being a really good read, the book is set in Chicago and refers to various places, neighborhoods, etc. from the vantage point of someone who's actually lived in the city.

I'll link to a review on the sidebar.
