Review of The Year of Durocher by Theodore Jacobs

Wednesday, May 28th, 2014

Durochercoverfinal

If you have not seen Lawrence Levinson’s superb review of the fun coming of age novel by Theodore Jacobs, here are some quotes from that review. The book can be obtained on request from IPBooks.net: by Clicking Here.

The Year of Durocher is a moving, observant, funny—and fun—novel.  But like all good, serious fiction, the entertainment is in the service of a larger aim.
