Stealing Home is not so much about baseball as it is about relationships, childhood, and integrity Brenna approaches the game though the personal and universal, with engaging poems that a son's relationship with his father, a girlfriend seducing a player on a baseball diamond in the dead of night or a reaction to a particular major league stadium. While Stealing Home takes the reader behind the scenes in major league ballparks giving voice to icons like Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle, and Jackie Robinson, but at its heart are poems about baseball as a prairie rite of passage. Like the sport it pays homage to, Stealing Home, draws you in, and loads up the bases with its humour, insight, honesty and emotional power. Baseball players and fans both young and old will want Stealing home on their book shelves and dug outs. Here is poetry that takes you into extra innings and delivers a game winning home run.
