The late Eliot Asinof (1919-2008), renowned author of Eight Men Out, on which the movie version was later based, also wrote 14 other full length books, including 4 more on baseball. In addition, he produced countless articles, interviews, short stories, and screenplays in a writing career spanning over half a century. This is the first detailed critical study for both his baseball and non-baseball output. His entire oeuvre is explored, as well as pertinent themes, major characters and the current status of his literary reputation. A major addition to the scholarly work on this minor-league baseball player turned author.
