Henry Wiggen, hero of The Southpaw and the best-known fictional baseball player in America, is back again, throwing a baseball “with his arm and his brain and his memory and his bluff for the sake of his pocket and his family.” More than a novel about baseball, Bang the Drum Slowly is about the friendship and the lives of a group of men as they each learn that a teammate is dying of cancer.

When we rejoin Henry Wiggen he is now married to Holly and she is three months pregnant. Henry has been in the big leagues for several years and sells insurance on the side. His friend and fellow ballplayer, Bruce Pearson, is dying of cancer. Henry's life becomes a balance of baseball, family, and friendship as Bruce's condition is kept a secret from the rest of the team. Henry ("Author" as he is called by his teammates because of his first book) grows up a great deal in this second book. When Bruce's prostitute girlfriend wants Bruce to change his will Henry must step up to protect his friend. At the same time he becomes a father and a leader of the Mammoths. ( )

[Bang the Drum Slowly] by Mark Harris

First line:
~Me and Holly were laying around in bed around 10 A.M. on a Wednesday morning when the call come (sic) ~

I saw the film, with Michael Moriarity and Robert deNiro, many years ago and bought the book at a second hand bookstore, also many years ago but never read it. I was just about to pass it on, without reading it, when I saw the Spring Training Challenge and thought maybe this would be a good chance to give it a try.

I did not enjoy it very much. Well, that is not entirely true. I enjoyed the basic story but I found that there was just too much baseball in it for me.

My father died of Hodgkin’s Disease when I was 16 years old and, I remember being very touched when I saw the movie and was very impressed with Robert deNiro’s performance. For me the book did not have the emotional ‘punch’ that I was expecting.

I guess if you are a real baseball lover, you would get more out of the book, since a lot if it is detailed information about baseball, trades, statistics etc.

I would give this book 3 stars.
liked it, didn't like it... ( )

I appreciated the insights into human behavior that permeated the book. Two messages from this book will be in my thoughts for the next few days: 1) Sometimes, we don't start living until we truly understand that we are dying. 2) Friends can make living worthwhile. And there is the bonus thought, that you can be a better friend that you think you are.
