After three non-fiction books, his first novel.
Detroit — With Spring Training well underway, Detroit-based author Rodney Curtis has just released his latest book, Hope’s Diamond.
The novel is a fun, fantastical tale focused on baseball, Detroit, relationships and the funny things that happen when you toss a little mystical Hope into the mix.
When a curious visitor comes to pitch for The Detroit Bengals, no one is quite sure who he is or where he comes from, but man, does he have an insane fastball and a gravity-defying curve!
Told in a fast-paced storyline, with quick and easy chapters, early reviewers have called it “a grand slam” and “A very moving and inspiring story that resonates with readers.”
Rodney’s other books — Spiritual Wanderer, Getting Laid (off) and A “cute” Leukemia — have all met with critical and cultural success.
“Hope’s Diamond empowers the spirit of Detroit, is thoughtful, wise and playfully funny,” writes another reviewer.
