Another early and fabulous Grand Slam blurb (from Daniel Nester)

Albany's Metroland featured Daniel's book, How to Be Inappropriate
This week I had some great early blurbs from Nadine Darling and Jessica Keener

Today another generous endorsement by Daniel Nester

Daniel Nester:

"In The Grand Slam, Timothy Gager shares the touching stories of characters who so often set are aside as window dressing in other novels. Here, Gager gives them the full spotlight: waitress, line order cook, knockaround guy, each patron comes alive as fully rounded, damaged, loving people. Like Sherwood Anderson's Winesburg, Ohio, Gager's book offers us both myth and realism, hand in hand."
