Kirkus Reviews (Starred review)

“This is a hard-hitting examination of minor league baseball and some of the major issues of life in small-town America. In this compelling book Mann seeks to humanize not only the players but also the fans who comprise the family of this small-town field of dreams. Overshadowing much of the story is the decline of Clinton, a once proud, mighty union town… At bottom, this work examines honestly, seriously, and at times comically dreams dashed, dreams deferred, and perhaps dreams yet to be realized. Like a mixture of Bull Durham, American Gothic, a Coen brothers film, and a Springsteen song." —The Library Journal (Starred review)

"Lord Fear is not a biography or an elegy or a even a memoir so much as it is a meditation on the function of grace, proof that love can defy all logic, transcend facts or even reality itself until it is almost indistinguishable from faith...Mann proves himself one of the most talented young nonfiction writers working today." —The Miami Herald
