The Fifth Inning

E. Ethelbert Miller reads from his second memoir, The Fifth Inning, now out in paperback from PM Press. 5 p.m. Saturday, April 28 at Busboys & Poets, 5th and K Streets, NW.  Ethelbert will be interviewed by his wife, Dr. Denise King-Miller, in a discussion of memoir writing, marriage, and baseball.  Come listen and play catch with them.

"Traditionally, it's viewed as a female occupation, to strip away the layers and examine the experience of relationships with a partner, with children, within one's own interior emotional life. Here comes a strong, real male voice, exploring the terrifying territory of growing older--in a marriage, in a family, in one's body. Ethelbert Miller writes with naked honesty and courage about what it is to be a man no longer young. Youth may have left him. Passion has not.” --Joyce Maynard, author of At Home in the World
