Characters and Plots in the Fiction of Ring Lardner
This reference book acquaints and reacquaints readers with the brilliant short stories of Ring Lardner, who was the first and remains one of the best contemporary baseball writers--accurate, colloquial, and funny. His characters, both real and fictional, are handled here, as are the plots and details of some 35 short stories devoted almost exclusively to baseball. Equal attention is paid to 92 non-baseball stories, including 34 that are extremely rare and have never been collected in book form.
