The Bookshelf Conversation: Jeff Polman

June 6, 2016 · 0 comments

Many of us play Strat-o-matic or some other fantasy version of the game. Robert Coover wrote the classic baseball fiction, The Universal Baseball Association, Inc., J. Henry Waugh, Prop.

I had somewhat of an ulterior motive for speaking with Polman since I’m working on my own book about Hammerin’ Hank. Here’s our conversation.

 

Be sociable, share the Bookshelf!
