Inhaltsangabe: Henry Biggs, ex-baseball star, is still a celebrity in rural Vermont, where he has ambiguous political ambitions which are encouraged by Ed Cobb, Speaker of the House. And just in case a bit more than encouragement is needed, Ed has a nice little line in blackmail up his sleeve.
From Library Journal:
The time is 1968. Henry Briggs, retired baseball player now working as a game warden in Vermont, is picked by politician Ed Cobb to run for the Democratic seat in a Congressional race. His opponent, Wainwright, is approaching 80 and has been in office for as long as anyone can remember. But various people begin to delve into the past when Russ Wixton, a newspaperman, decides to do features on Briggs and a hometown boy returning in a casket from Vietnam. While early portions of the novel seem laden with digressions and superfluous characters, Higgins, as one might expect, pulls everything together in time for a satisfying ending. Spanning more than 20 years, this cynical, crusty novel will reward serious readers who stay with it. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 7/90.
