Stefan Fatsis…despite its sometimes breathless tone and metaphorical overreaching, Bottom of the 33rd is…a worthy companion to Roger Kahn's classic Boys of Summer, about the Brooklyn Dodgers of the 1950s. While the books' subjects are baseball opposites—one bizarre minor-league game versus a historically beloved major-league team—Mr. Barry, like Mr. Kahn, exploits the power of memory and nostalgia with literary grace and journalistic exactitude. He blends a vivid, moment-by-moment re-creation of the game with what happens to its participants in the next 30 years.
