The Malibu Book Club discusses "The Art of Fielding" by Chad Harbach
Diesel, A Bookstore in Malibu welcomes the Malibu Book Club back to the store to discuss Chad Harbach's award-winning novel, The art of fielding, on Wednesday, March 13th at 5pm.At Westish College, baseball star Henry Skrimshander seems destined for big league until a routine throw goes disastrously off course. In the aftermath of his error, the fates of five people are upended. Henry's fight against self-doubt threatens to ruin his future. College president Guert Affenlight has fallen unexpectedly and helplessly in love. Owen Dunne becomes caught up in a dangerous affair. Mike Schwartz realizes he has guided Henry's career at the expense of his own. And Pella Affenlight returns to Westish after escaping an ill-fated marriage, determined to start a new life.

Written with boundless intelligence and filled with the tenderness of youth, The art of fielding is an expansive, warmhearted novel about ambition and its limits, about family and friendship and love, and about commitment--to oneself and to others.

Say What You Mean About n+1, with Marco Roth, Keith Gessen and Christian Lorentzen
New York-based literary magazine n+1 was launched in the Autumn of 2004 by Keith Gessen, Benjamin Kunkel, Mark Greif, Chad Harbach, and Marco Roth. Dissatisfied with the American intellectual scene and its ‘demented self-censorship’, the editors cited as their model for the new venture the early years of Partisan Review and Lingua Franca. In the eight years since then, the magazine’s controversial take on politics, culture and society has made it one of the most criticized, lauded and generally talked about periodicals of the new century. Christian Lorentzen, senior editor at the LRB, was involved right at the start, as he describes in his foreword to a new anthology of writings from n+1 published by Notting Hill Editions, the title of which is taken from the closing words of the magazine’s first issue: ‘it is time to say what you mean.’ Two n+1 editors, Keith Gessen and Marco Roth, will be joining Christian at the shop for a discussion about magazines, literature, n+1, youthful ambition and Marco’s family memoir The Scientists, due to be published by Union Books in January.
