This annotated bibliography covers approximately 400 novels published between 1838 and 2007. Following a substantial introduction to the history and development of the genre, the main text provides chronologically arranged entries on hundreds of novels written for the adult and young adult reader, with bibliographic details and extensive annotations on plot, themes, and compositional strengths and weaknesses. Included are so-called mainstream novels by writers such as Hemingway, Wolfe, Roth, and DeLillo, whose extensive use of baseball memorably demonstrates the game's cultural pervasiveness.Appendices provide historical overviews for the primary baseball subgenres, including mystery, fantasy, and science-fiction; lists for novels that foreground issues of race or ethnicity (or both, as in Winegardner's ""Vera Cruz Blues""), gender (Gilbert's ""A League of Their Own""), and class (Hays' ""The Dixie Association""); and the author's rankings of great baseball novels overall and by subgenre.
