Inhaltsangabe: At 26, Brian Schwan is washed up. Four years hacking away on third-rate golf courses across the South have produced a grand total of $19,000 in earnings, zero wins, and a string of spectacular tournament flame-outs. He's just shot a horrendous opening round, his wife wants him to come home and start a family, and even his father, who dreamed of seeing his son a star golfer, seems to have given up on his game. Critically acclaimed on its hardcover publication, Spikes is a sharply observed novel about the obscurity of our motivations, our capacity for self-delusion, and the surprising, unexpected possibilities for grace.
While Spikes has some of the best writing on golf ever penned, the struggles of a character coming to grips with his own failings will hit a nerve with all readers, golfers and non-golfers alike.
Über den Autor: A native of Charleston, South Carolina, Michael Griffith has had stories and essays published in the Oxford American, Salmagundi, the Virginia Quarterly Review and other journals. He is the associate editor of the Southern Review.
