Robert Joe Stout

Author Robert Joe Stoutabout this book: The three poetic sections of A Perfect Pitch web separate confrontations with love, aspiration and destiny. Each entwines the personalities in a vivid examination of human struggles, achievements and compromise. For the members of a Mexican baseball team the game they play is the fiber that unifies their disparate and often conflictive personalities. They achieve a comradeship, a sharing, despite the sometimes painful, often hilarious thumpings and grindings of their daily lives. The narrator of a marriage that has ended after the death, chronic illness, fatherhood and altered lifestyles faces a new life carrying the responsibilities of the old and the feelings of love, conflict and alienation that they engender. And a pioneer mother in a nineteenth century Nevada mining camp re-achieves the faith she lost after her husband's death through a new and unconventional relationship that enables her to rise above the harships and poverty of the desolate environment that surround her. Their emotions,and those that they invoke, are the heart and soul of A Perfect Pitch.
