Charles Holdefer
“ A minor-league ball player tries to find
peace and the pastoral life as a
schoolteacher, but gets a rude awakening
when confronted by meth heads, kids with
serious bullying issues, and industrial pork
farms. After starting an affair with the mother
of one of his students, he winds up in a
world of trouble he never could have
imagined. With a keen sense of social satire,
Holdefer gives us reason to rethink what a
simple life looks like.”
                                
—Booklist


“Holdefer’s satisfying, at times funny novel
describes a maturing pro athlete’s often
bumpy transition from youthful dreams to
mainstream American life.”

"Back in the Game packs a solid punch . . .
This book oddly shares an impressive heart
and a comfortable, reasonable approach to
life that belies the desperation of some of its
characters."
