A bitter, hard-driving father, willing to do anything and trust anyone to get his son to The Show. A son who’s devoted to the Old Man, but scared shitless of crossing him. And a coach who shows up in town, ready to wrap them both in his web.
It’s a timeless story of a parent who’s convinced he’s doing the right thing.
It’s a portrait of our love affair with baseball and kids, and the risks we take playing in the dirt.
Diamonds and Dirt is William Walker’s first novel.
