Additional Information

It’s 1949 and eighteen-year-old pitching phenom Mickey Tussler is back with the rejuvenated minor league Brewers in the sequel to The Legend of Mickey Tussler (the basis for the television movie A Mile in His Shoes). Despite Mickey’s proclamation that he will never play baseball again after last season’s violent conclusion, his manager—and now surrogate father—Arthur Murphy cajoles the emotionally fragile, socially awkward boy with autism into giving it another shot. Mickey reluctantly returns to the field and must once again cope with the violence and hatred around him. When a young African American player joins the team, the entire team is subjected to racial threats and episodes of violence, one of which Mickey witnesses firsthand. Struggling to understand such ugliness and hatred, and fearful of reprisal should he tell anyone about what he has seen, the boy’s performance on the field suffers. Mickey now must deal with a side of human nature he scarcely comprehends.

I have been a huge fan of author Frank Nappi since I read his debut novel, the award-winning Echoes from the Infantry: A Novel in 2005. My faith in his great potential was rewarded; since then he has written The Legend of Mickey Tussler: A Novel which was released as a film last September and is now a DVD. Movie title is "A Mile in His Shoes," starring Dean Cain and Luke Schroder.

And now Nappi has penned Sophomore Campaign: A Mickey Tussler Novel, the exciting sequel which is also slated for film.

Sophmore Campaign by Frank Nappi took me completely by surprise. I am not a baseball fan by any means but I was able to relate to the story in many ways. Being born in Wisconsin and having parents who talked about Robin Yount and Paul Molitor, I was thrilled to discover that the novel focused on the Milwaukee Brewers. This in and of itself drew me into the story despite its baseball focus. I was thrilled as I read more and realized that one of the main character Mickey Tussler was exhibiting symptoms of autism. With a background in Special Education and a lot of experience working with Autistic children and adults, I genuinely enjoy working with and learning about individuals on the Autism Spectrum. Two points of connection already had me won over, but as a read further and I saw the story take on the topic of segregation during the 1940’s and the struggle to concur it I knew that the book would be outstanding.

Now and then along comes an author whose ability to connect with a reader's mind creates a bond that is lasting. So it is with the very fine American author Frank Nappi. This reader was deeply touched by Nappi's 2005 debut novel ECHOES FROM THE INFANTRY, and when his next book was released, THE LEGEND OF MICKEY TUSSLER, the following review resulted: `Not being a baseball fan or even knowing much about the game or the cheering throngs who have made the sport part of the definition of 'America', this reader approached this novel with some hesitation, believing that if Frank Nappi could write so powerfully in ECHOES FROM THE INFANTRY, then surely this book deserves reading. And, once again, Frank Nappi has demonstrated his polished skills as a writer. Yes, the story is about baseball with all the excitement, romance, and obsession that sport engenders, but it is so much more. This story is about overcoming seemingly insurmountable odds of physical afflictions that will serve as a... Read more
