"The Dart League King" by Keith Lee Morris, (Tin House Books, 270 pages, $14.95)
With so many books to choose from, how do you decide which ones to read? I like to ask people what books they have enjoyed. When I interview authors I usually ask them for reading suggestions.
Pollock says that "people will be reading 'The Dart League King' for years to come. I'd wager a 12-pack on it." I had never heard of Morris so Pollock's recommendation led me to a novel I probably would not have read otherwise.
The story unfolds on a Thursday night — dart night in Garnet Lake, Idaho. Most of the action revolves around a dart league having a match at a bar called the 321 Club.
