Porter Square Books hosts DICK CLUSTER for a discussion of his collection of Latin American baseball fiction, Kill the Ámpaya! This collection features work from authors Leonardo Padura, Sergio Ramirez, Alexis Rosa Gomez and many more from countries such as Cuba, Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, and Venezuela.
A rich variety of baseball fiction exists south of the Florida Straits and the Rio Grande, but almost none available in English. This collection translates for the first time stories ranging from the highly literary to the vernacular. These inventive and entertaining stories reveal the place of baseball in Latin America.
