"MAKING CONTACT" is the story of a son's search for his father, and America's pastime, baseball. William Dobbs has only one thing to remember his biological father by, a picture of him wearing a New York Yankees hat. When Will learns at nine years old that his father did not die in a car accident eight years ago as he had always thought, he tries to make contact with him the only possible way he can think of, by becoming a New York Yankee. He succeeds. But an unexpected curveball throws Will's search, his entire life, and the game of baseball itself, into turmoil. Will's quest to find his father becomes bigger and more harrowing than he ever imagined as he struggles to fix the damage done to him, and that which he has done to others.
"CITIZEN SHANE" is a rare literary combination of humor and political philosophy, all rolled into the compelling story of a Brooklyn hipster trying to make it big in the world of artisan salad dressing. "Citizen Shane" is a daring attempt to educate and entertain, that will most certainly infuriate. Those who make it to the end without burning or throwing it against a wall will undoubtedly have a reading experience unlike any they've ever had before.
