Confessions from Left Field--#17 finished

I thought this would be more of a baseball book but instead it was more of a story of the author's screwed up life.  Time period late '70s and into early '80s, with the baseball strike right in the middle.  It was a time that I was really following baseball and thought it would be great to get another perspective on what was going on.  He touched on some baseball and some of what was still happening back then was interesting but mostly he was a kind of nomad.  I will have to wikipedia this author just to see what happened to him.  His writing was interesting at times and he certainly had a different view on things but overall a pretty forgettable book.

I have posted it on PBS, there is already 1 copy in system ahead of it.  I don't expect this to move but stranger things have happened.
