Giving Out a Star

Read review here
I've been reviewing books for Kirkus for a year or more now, and I recommended Trophy by Michael Griffin get a star. I don't think I've ever starred a book previously. If you like Dylan, if you like Stephen Wright, if you like black comedy, you'll love Griffith's Trophy.
The novel is a surrealistic meditation on, and a send-up of, the American dream, consumerism, God, the modern family and assorted other human foibles, complete with a semi-pro evangelical Christian baseball team, the Risen, with a mascot named "Pablo the Bible-believing Possum."
