Review:

"[A] masterpiece...destined for the Hall of Fame of baseball books."---Publisher's Weekly

"A fascinating, beautifully told story... In the hands of Barry, a national correspondent for the New York Times, this marathon of duty, loyalty, misery and folly becomes a riveting narrative...The book feels like 'Our Town' on the diamond."---Los Angeles Times

"[An] heroic conjuring of the past."---New York Times Book Review

"An astonishing tale that lyrically articulates baseball's inexorable grip on its players and fans, Bottom of the 33rd belongs among the best baseball books ever written."---Cleveland Plain Dealer

"A worthy companion to Roger Kahn's classic Boys of Summer ...[Dan Barry] 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."---Stefan Fatsis, New York Times

"Dan's Barry's meticulous reporting and literary talent are both evident in Bottom of the 33rd, a pitch-perfect and seamless meditation on baseball and the human condition."---Gay Talese

"What a book -- an exquisite exercise in story-telling, democracy and myth-making that has, at its center, a great respect for the symphony of voices that make up America."---Colum McCann

"Brilliantly rendered...The book is both a fount of luxurious writing and a tour-de-force of reportage."---Washington Post

"Whether you're a baseball aficionado or a reader who just enjoys a good yarn, you'll love this book."---Minneapolis Star Tribune

"Meticulously researched and tremendously entertaining!"---Columbus Dispatch

"[Dan] Barry does more than simply recount the inning-by-inning-by-inning box score. He delves beneath the surface, like an archaeologist piecing together the shards and fragments of a forgotten society, to reconstruct a time and a night that have become part of baseball lore."---Associated Press

WINNER OF THE 2012 PEN/ESPN AWARD FOR LITERARY SPORTSWRITING --"Penthouse", on "Dishwasher"
