“At last, a great tennis novel!”
Gary Glassman, Stony Brook University
Your favorite tennis book may have to step aside for this new novel by John Gruberg.  The semi-autobiographical narrative offers high tennis adventure loaded with humor and witty insights to the game as two small-time tennis pros hit the road. Meanwhile, the golden years of Borg, Connors, McEnroe / Evert, Navratilova, King, haunt the background.  (Unique tennis instruction tips are a bonus.)

Arguably one of the best tennis books, John Gruberg’s Tennis Hobo has a literary vibe that brings to mind the classic, A Handful of Summers by Gordon Forbes.
