520    "From Paris Review and New Yorker cartoonist Jason Novak, 
       a history of the scrappy beginnings of baseball, told in 
       101 one-sentence biographies. I like to think of the book 
       as a visual essay that highlights a little-talked about 
       era of baseball, and specifically the men (and some women)
       who played then. For the major leagues, the Negro leagues,
       and the Women's League. Mostly it's just little bios with 
       a kernel of the uncanny, often followed by a tragic end of
       many of the people who played pro ball before it was a 
       professions. So there are details of their non-baseball 
       lives as well, which really makes the unspoken case for 
       baseball as a game, as it once was, and, when you think 
       about baseball in the context of it being "America's 
       pastime," this really opens up doors to think about this 
       book as a profound essay on work, class, and race in 
       America during that era"--|cProvided by publisher.
