Blockade Billy on the Nook
Stephen King may be known as "The King of Horror", but he is also known as a fantastic painter of characters! He has such range in finding ways to present a character! Blockade Billy is one side of a conversation of an elderly man in a nursing home with Stephen King. He's telling King about Blockade Billy, a very unusual baseball player that he knew long ago. It's more of a short story than a novel, but an enjoyable couple hours' read. Those who like and follow baseball are more likely to enjoy all the references and context, but the "baseball ignorant" (like me) can still manage just fine to go along for the Stephen King ride.
