A science-fiction like story with baseball at its core. It tells the story of a family of Surplus people who are "resisting" their lower place in society, a bleak world not too far in the future that has been ravished by climate change and is run by technocrats, AI, big data, and robots. I liked the language and story, partly because I've always like science fiction, and partly because Gish really knows baseball. The resisters never give up. Here's hoping that we prove as resilient as the people in this story as we face our current and future societal futures.
