Wherever I Wind Up: My Quest for Truth, Authenticity and the Perfect Knuckleball
R.A. Dickey with Wayne Coffey, read by Ben Hunter. Mission Audio, unabridged, eight CDs, 9.5 hrs., $24.98 ISBN 978-1-61045-596-1
Major League All-Star and New York Mets pitcher R.A. Dickey has led a remarkable life—and he’s only 38. While that’s considered elderly for a professional athlete, Dickey remains one of the top pitchers in baseball and indeed the only active pitcher capable of throwing the perfect knuckleball. Narrator Ben Hunter delivers a subdued but pitch-perfect (excuse the pun) performance in the audio edition of this memoir in which Dickey charts the course of his life, covering everything from the ups and downs of his career to the importance of his faith. Throughout, Hunter’s tone is sincere and engaging, his delivery exquisitely paced, and his timing spot-on. Listeners will be transfixed by this compelling and earnest audiobook. A Penguin/Blue Rider hardcover. (Aug.)
