"Rosenfield is no sprinter, but rather a long distance runner." - Jay McInerney, author of Bright Lights Big City and dozens of other books and columns.
A father's Bipolar illness, as seen through the eyes of a young girl who is determined to bring back her regular Daddy, will fascinate anyone who who has loved a mentally ill family member. Parallel to the narrator's story is that of the Boston Red Sox and their own manic-depressive history. Famed center fielder, Jimmy Piersall, also takes center stage as the next door neighbor of the narrator. This is the story of redemption: narrator Marlene becomes a writer "because it is the only way I know to keep a voice alive."
