The Art of Ducking

Chad Harbach’s The Art of Fielding may be this fall’s “It” novel. Could part of the appeal be its striking similarity to these other novels featuring a  small white ball of destiny?

Fifth Business by Robertson Davies
A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving
Things Invisible to See by Nancy Willard

A television adaptation has already been pitched. (Don’t look at me that way, Variety couldn’t resist the puns, either.)
