Book Summary:

“Grisham knocks it out of the park.”—The Washington Post It’s the summer of 1973, and Joe Castle is the boy wonder of baseball, the greatest rookie anyone has ever seen. The kid from Calico Rock, Arkansas, dazzles Chicago Cubs fans as he hits home run after home run, politely tipping his hat to the crowd as he shatters all rookie records. Calico Joe quickly becomes the idol of every baseball fan in America, including Paul Tracey, the young son of a hard-partying and hard-throwing New York Mets pitcher. On the day that Warren Tracey finally faces Calico Joe, Paul is in the stands, rooting for his idol but also for his dad. Then Warren throws a fastball that will change their lives forever. #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER “An enjoyable, heartwarming read that’s not just for baseball fans.”—USA Today “Grisham has hit a home run. . . . Calico Joe is a great read, a lyrical ode to baseball, small-town America, youthful innocence and a young boy’s search for heroes.”—The Buffalo News “[A] pleasure . . . Suffice to say [Grisham] knows his way around the ballpark as well as he does a courtroom.”—The Washington Times Includes an excerpt of John Grisham’s The Racketeer

Book Summary:

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Rick Dockery is the third-string quarterback for the Cleveland Browns. In the AFC Championship game, to the surprise and dismay of virtually everyone, Rick actually gets into the game. With a seventeen-point lead and just minutes to go, Rick provides what is arguably the worst single performance in the history of the NFL. Overnight, he becomes a national laughingstock—and is immediately cut by the Browns and shunned by all other teams. But all Rick knows is football, and he insists that his agent find a team that needs him. Against enormous odds, Rick finally gets a job—as the starting quarterback for the Mighty Panthers . . . of Parma, Italy. The Parma Panthers desperately want a former NFL player—any former NFL player—at their helm. And now they’ve got Rick, who knows nothing about Parma (not even where it is) and doesn’t speak a word of Italian. To say that Italy—the land of fine wines, extremely small cars, and football americano—holds a few surprises for Rick Dockery would be something of an understatement. BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from John Grisham's The Litigators.

Book Summary:

"Swing is richly rewarding...a tight, poignant coming of age novel...[that] will stay with you long after you put this book down." –Sports Illustrated John Kostka is three feet tall but larger than life, moving through the world on gloved hands and powerful arms as if on a set of parallel bars. Henry Graham is a ten year-old boy whose father has just left home for good. When the two meet at a downtown bus stop, all they seem to have in common is their love of the 1971 Pittsburgh Pirates. But that is enough to begin a life-long friendship that, eventually, enables both men to confront old enemies and heal old wounds. Philip Beard's third and most accomplished novel swings between two narratives the way John Kostka swings through life. The result is a multifaceted meditation on childhood heroes, the beauty of baseball and the power of love to heal a family in crisis. “Philip Beard’s Swing is a novel to be savored.” –Sara Gruen, New York Times bestselling author of Water for Elephants and Ape House “Philip Beard’s novel Swing is complex and rich, and the characters feel fully made of flesh and blood as they make their way through the pages... It’s at once heartbreaking, uplifting and emotionally resonant. In a word, it’s beautiful."-Pittsburgh Magazine “Beard‘s characters are flawed but inherently likeable, and he allows us to know them intimately, so their missteps and misfortunes hit like a punch in the gut every time. Every character—the absent father, the troubled sister, the mysterious wonder that is John Kostka—feels alive due to Beard‘s skillfully simple prose and dialogue. …Philip Beard‘s other novels, Lost in the Garden and Dear Zoe (named as one of Booklist’s Ten Best First Novels) have garnered some attention, but with Swing, Beard has hit it out of the park.” –Foreword Reviews "If your sensibilities allow for the careful blending of baseball nostalgia and muscular literature, Swing is right there in your wheelhouse. Mr. Beard’s richly formed characters each command the reader’s interest from the quiet urgency in their evolving selves, but none is as unforgettable as John Kostka, a legless veteran who swings himself on and off PAT buses with varying degrees of success. That the story unfolds against the backdrop of the decidedly non-fiction Pittsburgh Pirates of 1971 is not just a literary device for time and place. It’s a launch point for Mr. Beard’s own subtle beauty-of-baseball treatise, and the beauty here lies as much in the writing as in the game. The reader needs no special affinity for either the team or even the sport to enjoy Swing. Still, in the game’s most elemental terms, Mr. Beard’s swing here is just about perfect. In fact, he crushes it." –The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette “In his wonderful follow-up to Dear Zoe, Philip Beard takes his readers to unexpected places with emotions as true and honest as ever. Gracefully shifting points-of-view and characters—from 1970’s World Series Pittsburgh to the present— in prose that would make Richard Yates proud, Beard delivers a story of how we grow up, how we grow old, and how we grow into people we both love and hate. In the World Series of the heart, Beard takes the pennant, delivering grace to the reader in the same way his characters dream of saving one another.” –Lori Jakiela, award-winning author of The Bridge to Take When Things Get Serious “Narrator Henry Graham asks his writing students, ‘But what does it taste like?’ Philip Beard’s Swing is a novel to be savored.” –Sara Gruen, New York Times bestselling author of Water for Elephants and Ape House “Like Chad Harbaugh in The Art of Fielding, Philip Beard uses baseball as a lens to view love and loss. Swing is a generous, heartfelt novel filled with imperfect characters worth loving, and a valentine to Pittsburgh and the great Pirate teams of Maz and Clemente.” –Stewart O’Nan, award-winning author of Faithful and Emily Alone "Swing is the work of a superb storyteller, infused with keen observation, the ache of nostalgia and deep emotion that is always earned. No one has better captured so many significant stages of life or so beautifully combined them, and Beard’s perfect balance between elegant phrasing and a driving narrative make Swing a novel impossible to put down." –Tasha Alexander, New York Times bestselling author of Death in the Floating City "Philip Beard's new book arrives as a very rare achievement: a novel that feels truly and fully and enchantingly alive. Damaged and wounded, yearning and adrift, often down but never entirely out, his vivid characters come onstage as people we know—and they reveal themselves ever more fully as we learn their stories, because Philip Beard is one writer who never cuts corners or fails to go deep. A first-rate novel of second chances, Swing is one from the heart." –Jon Clinch, award-winning author of Finn and The Thief of Auschwitz “An exquisite novel so real you watch it rather than read it. Masterful, erotic and poignant, Swing is a movie waiting to happen.” –Tish Cohen, bestselling author of Inside Out Girl and The Search Angel.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER In his final hours in office, the outgoing President grants a controversial last-minute pardon to Joel Backman, a notorious Washington power broker who has spent the last six years hidden away in a federal prison. What no one knows is that the President issues the pardon only after receiving enormous pressure from the CIA. It seems that Backman, in his heyday, may have obtained secrets that compromise the world’s most sophisticated satellite surveillance system. Backman is quietly smuggled out of the country in a military cargo plane, given a new name, a new identity, and a new home in Italy. Eventually, after he has settled into his new life, the CIA will leak his whereabouts to the Israelis, the Russians, the Chinese, and the Saudis. Then the CIA will do what it does best: sit back and watch. The question is not whether Backman will survive—there is no chance of that. The question the CIA needs answered is, Who will kill him?

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER BONUS: This edition contains excerpts from John Grisham's The Litigators and Calico Joe. An innocent man is about to be executed. Only a guilty man can save him. In 1998, in the small East Texas city of Sloan, Travis Boyette abducted, raped, and strangled a popular high school cheerleader. He buried her body so that it would never be found, then watched in amazement as police and prosecutors arrested and convicted Donté Drumm, a local football star, and marched him off to death row. Now nine years have passed. Travis has just been paroled in Kansas for a different crime; Donté is four days away from his execution. Travis suffers from an inoperable brain tumor. For the first time in his miserable life, he decides to do what’s right and confess. But how can a guilty man convince lawyers, judges, and politicians that they’re about to execute an innocent man?
