520    Joe Grudeck is a living legend—a first-ballot Hall of 
       Famer beloved by Boston Red Sox fans who once played for 
       millions under the bright Fenway lights. Now, he finds 
       himself haunted by his own history, searching for 
       connection in a world that’s alienated the true person 
       behind his celebrity facade. He’ll step back into the 
       spotlight once more with a very risky Cooperstown 
       acceptance speech that has the power to change 
       everything—except the darkness in his past.  Horace 
       Mueller is a different type altogether—working in darkness
       at a museum blacksmith shop and living in a rundown 
       farmhouse on the outskirts of Cooperstown, New York. He 
       clings to an anachronistic lifestyle, fueled by nostalgia 
       for simpler times and a rebellion against the sport-
       celebrity lifestyle of Cooperstown, struggling to bring 
       his baseball prodigy son to his side.  Gods of Wood and 
       Stone is the story of these two men—framed by the lens of 
       baseball, a timeless, but strikingly singular tale of the 
       responsibilities of manhood and the pitfalls of glory in a
       painful and exhilarating novel that’s distinctly American.
