Coyote Moon: A Novel of Love, Baseball, and the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle, by John A. Miller, is a warm, funny, beautifully written, and delightfully odd-ball story about a baseball player of uncertain past, a desert trailer park of ambiguous reputation, and the interconnectedness of life.
I liked Miller’s approach to love and life, and his take on serendipity and eternity, and loved the book from first word to last. It’s odd. It’s not for everybody. But it was a perfect fit for me. Baseball, magic, and strange doings in the desert with people I liked more with every page — how could that not be a home run?
If you’re willing to try something different, try this.
