The Natural by Bernard MalamudTitle:  The Natural

Author:  Bernard Malamud

Call #:  MAL

This book, which inspired a hugely popular film, is much different from the Hollywood version. Based partly on true events, it traces the life of a small town baseball player with an unprecedented talent for the game. His life spirals out of control when a psychopathic killer of athletes nearly brings his life to an end. Wounded beyond full recovery, he must deal with the reality of his situation and the pain of failure.
