The Natural by Bernard Malamud
This story concerns the fall, rise and subsequent failure
of Roy Hobbs, a star baseball hitter, whose career succumbs to corruption.
The games - the crowd, the tension, the next shot - are described with
great verve and excitement. The book, written in a spare clear style,
is about much more than the game of baseball which it describes.
